Last night, I finally watched “The Fault In Our Stars”. Side note – do NOT watch this movie in public. You WILL cry. In fact, you will ugly cry. Grab some tissues; you will need them. Trust me.
There’s a profound moment toward the end of the movie that I found incredibly beautiful. It’s edited below so as to not spoil the movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it. But to the writer who inserted these brilliant words – well done.
I’m not a mathematician, but I do know this: There are infinite numbers between zero and one. There’s point one, point one two, point one one two, and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger set of infinite numbers between zero and two or between zero and a million. Some infinities are simply bigger than other infinities. […] But my love, I can not tell you how thankful I am, for our little infinity. You gave me a forever, within the numbered days. And for that I am… I am eternally grateful.
