"Out of the people that ever were, almost all of them are dead. There are way more dead people, and you're all gonna die and then you're gonna be dead for way longer than you're alive. Like that's mostly what you're ever gonna be. You're just dead people that didn't die yet." — comedian Louis C.K.
marry your best friend. i do not say that lightly. really. truly find the strongest, happiest, friendship in the person you fall in love with. someone who speaks highly of you. someone you can laugh with, the kind of laughs that make youre belly ache, and your nose snort. the embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. wit is important. life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love and madness combine and course through you. a love that will never dilute -- even when that waters get deep and dark.
