“If you’ve got the opportunity to love someone as much as they love you, then grab it with both hands and hold on to it for dear life.”
John Marrs, The One

“What if it turns out our DNA doesn’t Match?” “Then we’ll be mindful that maybe we’ll need to put more effort into our relationship. Like John Lennon said, ‘All You Need Is Love.’” “Yes, but he also said, ‘I Am The Walrus,’ so let’s not hold too much credence to his pearls of wisdom.”
John Marrs, The One

“To anyone who ever gave you confidence - you owe them a lot.”
