"I am no one special, just a common man with common thoughts. I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me, and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect, I've succeeded as gloriously as anyone who ever lived. I've loved another with all my heart and soul, and for me, that has always been enough."
-the Notebook : Nicholas Sparks-
call me a sap, but this is my favorite quote of all time. it actually changed my life in a lot of ways. even sappier, I know.
