: I'm trying to find out about the saying about the day of the week you're were born on, for instance a child born on Sunday will be healthy, wealthy, and wise I might have phrased it incorrectly.

This Wikipedia article says there are several versions including this old one:

Monday's child is fair of face.
Tuesday's child is full of grace.
Wednesday's child is full of woe.
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving.
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay.
