"On the day you are born, you will share it with 17 million other people. During your 10 years in school, you will make, on average, at least 20 good friends. By the time you’re 40, that number will have dropped down to 3. You will grow 950km of hair. You will laugh an average 18 times a day. You will walk the equivalent of 3 times the circumference of the Earth. You will eat 30 tonnes of food, and drink 9,000 cups of coffee or tea. On average, you will spend 15 years of your life at work, 20 years sleeping, 3 years on the toilet, 7 months waiting in traffic, 2 months on hold, and 19 days looking for the TV remote. This leaves you with just one fifth of your life to actually live… So what the hell are you waiting for?”
I love you: You imagine hearing the words from someone not related to you, someone not your best friend, but when someone you love, someone you dream about, actually says them, it makes your body melt and your breath get caught in your chest.
By Sarah Mlynowski, Ten Things We Did (via simply-quotes)
All the time I think I can never love you more than I already do. And then you do something or say something, and I love you more than ever. Like just now. Like now. How is it possible? Can you love someone more and more and at the same time, all the time, love them as much as it’s possible to love someone?
By Aidan Chambers, This is All (via simply-quotes)
There are a few moments in your life when you are truly and completely happy, and you remember to give thanks. Even as it happens you are nostalgic for the moment, you are tucking it away in your scrapbook.
By David Benioff, When the Nines Roll Over (via simply-quotes)
2 A.M. You know. The person you can call at two a.m. and, no matter what, you can count on them. Even if they’re asleep or its cold or you need to be bailed out of jail…they’ll come for you. It’s like the highest level of friendship.
