Happy b'day

You're 13!

Sophie. You're such a gem or should I say Jem (see what I did there :). I found that writing a card for you is tremendously difficult because for someone so dear to you words are hard to come up with. I decided to put quotations because sometimes when quoting others we cite ourselves.

“It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson.  

“I've got the Mark of Cain," said Simon. "That means nothing can kill me, right?"

"You can kill yourself," Magnus said, somewhat unhelpfully. "As far as I know, inanimate objects can accidentally kill you. So if you were planning on teaching yourself the lambada on a greased platform over a pit full of knives, I wouldn't."
"There goes my Saturday.”

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.”
Anaïs Nin, The Diary of Anaïs Nin, Vol. 1: 1931-1934

That second one was just for fun :) I just wanted you to know how much I love you and your friendship means the world to me.
