Birthday Quotes

Birthday quotes are the best choice.

The simplest way to add  meaningful words to a card or birthday invitation; especially when you cannot think of anything original.  They can also come in handy for times when you need to give a birthday card, but you don’t know the person very well.  It’s a classic choice and a wonderful add-on to Happy Birthday.

Choosing a quote for someone you do know well can also can be the perfect touch especially when you match the verse to the card or match the verse to their personality.  You simply cannot lose by choosing a quote.

Here are some favorites.
