Celebrating birthdays is not merely a convention. Birthdays are occasions to celebrate one's growth, maturity, and development. Birthdays remind us that the gift of life is the most precious and important one.

Your birthday welcomes you into the beautiful "middle age." This age does not have the casual immaturity of the youth, not does it have the constant dependency of old age. You can enjoy your birthday in quiet reflection on the four decades of a beautiful life. It is the time for you to enjoy the little moments rather than focus on bigger events.

Inspirational words can motivate success. They can also tide you through bad times. Here is a collection of top 10 inspirational quotes. Read what the greatest minds have to tell you.

1. Mark Twain
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

2. Luigi Pirandello
In bed my real love has always been the sleep that rescued me by allowing me to dream.

3. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Take the first step in faith. You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

4. Zig Ziglar
People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.

5. T. S. Elliot
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.

6. Buddha
All that we are is the result of what we have thought.

7. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

8. Peter F. Drucker
We know nothing about motivation. All we can do is write books about it.

9. Nora Roberts
If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.

10. Stephen Covey
Begin with the end in mind.
