“You’re only human. You live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damned red velvet cupcake.” – Emma Stone

Red Velvet not worth the extra

Gush over a Flake Bar OK, not so much over Red Velvet cup cake

Fall in love in one day! YES :) repeatedly in one day along with on many different days

Anything can happen in just one day! Ask any of the astronauts who went to the Moon "How long was the journey?"

If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself...
