What is the most profound thing someone has said to you?

"You're a leader every day in the classroom by being curious and engaged."

____ said once during a study session last year to someone, "If it isn't going to affect you majorly, then don't complain or worry about it. Just ride your own wave my guy." And idk why but that's something I've remembered so much, and honestly probably always will.

"You're the person that will make you succeed, no one else can do that for you. It's all you in life."

Somehow people showing that I mean a lot to them. And that I'm a good person.

"you are a wonderful person with a big heart, but right now i don't think you see that in yourself."

Hearing someone tell me that I make them happy.

when _____ told me that he wanted to be with me forever. or when he told me he was in love with me.

"Did I raise you wrong?"

Someone I've never been close with coming up to me after a teacher made me feel badly saying, "hey, you didn't deserve that. He's an ass."

"Everything you say is so positive and you listen better than anyone I know."

"I'm so glad that God put you in my life."

"I still trust you. You made a mistake, but it's okay. It's not the end of the world."

That I was the thing keeping them going every day.

The idea that one day after you are long gone someone will think about you for the last time.

I think the thing that makes me the most giddy is when people compliment my eyes though. People tell me my eyes are really blue and it always brightens my mood. Also, my youth leader said, "comparison is the thief of all joy, and if you constantly compare things, you'll never appreciate something for what it is, especially yourself."

There was a man that my dad used to work for. his name was _____. I hadn't seen him for about 3 years this past year. I went to an NC State football game (where he works) and we were talking and I was telling him what I've done and what I'm trying to do and he just looked at me and said, "I'm so proud of you."

"Despite my mistakes, and despite my failures, and despite my weaknesses, I am still standing."

"Comparison is the thief of all joy."

"We'd care a lot less about what others thought of us, if we realized how little they did."

... One of the other counselors said I was the nicest guy shes met. Complements from people about my voice. Me being voted friendliest senior superlative.

When i was little and i was crying or upset for what seemed like no reason, my parents would ask "Do you just feel small?." Small as in helpless, or life, or just in comparison to everything around you, or you just don't know what to do. and that has stayed with me because when you're upset and you don't know why, sometimes you just feel small. and even as a little kid I just knew already what they meant when they asked it, and i would just nod and they'd give me a hug

"I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened" - Mark Twain.

I didn't tell you that I loved you just to say it. I said it because its how I felt and how I still feel. This is worth it for me and I'm willing to wait for it."

​​A girl told me that i was the strongest person she'd met. and that I was capable and strong.

"People will remember what seems right to them."

Probably either "God" or "I love you." Those two phrases, said in any order.
