You couldn’t be something that hundreds of others are.

“‘Do you think I’m wonderful?’ she asked him one day as they leaned against the trunk of a petrified maple. ‘No’, he said. ‘Why?’ ‘Because so many girls are wonderful. I imagine hundreds of men have called their loves wonderful today, and it’s only noon. You couldn’t be something that hundreds of others are.’”

– Jonathan Safran Foer
