Quote of the day
This quote is from Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender by Leslye Walton which is a novel filled with gorgeous quotes. I really like this one because, in a way, I tend to think the same way. I like counting how many days (2740), hours (65,760), minutes (3,945,600), seconds (236,736,000), nanoseconds (2.36736e+17) I have been together with my husband. Just for fun. I happen to find it fascinating. I also like to think how far I would get if all those seconds were actually steps (I could walk 4.14 times around the world). What about if they were baby carrots? In how many days could I eat them all? (I would have to eat 6485 baby carrots a day for a hundred years. Let’s not take the seconds as baby carrots.)
I know I’m weird but think how super cool it is. What’s there not to love about stats.
I also absolutely loved the book.
Quote in text:
“By this point Viviane Lavender had loved Jack Griffith for twelve years, which was far more than half of her life. If she thought of her love as a commodity and were to, say, eat it, it would fill 4,745 cherry pies. If she were to preserve it, she would need 23,725 glass jars and labels and a basement spanning the length of Pinnacle Lane.
If she were to drink it, she’d drown.”
― Leslye Walton, The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
