Experts have suggestions for proper toasts

Can t think of anything to say? Here are some ideas from Toasts for All Occasions by Jeff and Deborah Herman (Career Press, 1998), which is available at the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library.

Wedding:

• Here s to the husband, here s to the wife. May they be lovers for life.

• May you share a joy that grows deeper, a friendship that grows closer, and a marriage that grows richer through the years.

• I would like to thank the parents of the bride and groom, for without them, this day would not be possible.

Anniversary:

• To the wonderful couple who shows the rest of us what love is all about.

• Here s to you who halves my sorrows and doubles my love.

• To my twin soul: As the years pass we become more and more as one.

Birthday:

• To a great age: old enough to know better, young enough not to care.

• To a healthy year, and many of them.

• On your birthday, do unto yourself as you would have the world do unto you.

Friends:

• To our best friends, who know the worst about us but refuse to believe it.

• The Lord gives us our relatives thank God we can choose our friends.

• May the friends of our youth be the companions of our old age.

Retirement:

• Go for the gold in your golden years. You will always be golden to us.

• May your children figure out quickly that retirement means got a life.

• May you rediscover the dreams of youth, and apply the wisdom of experience.
