    The nicest thing I can recall is

    when my friend compared me to a tree lol. "I'm beautiful but you are more. I'm nothing compared to you, it's not flattery. You are just like a gentle, sweet tree shading everyone with its branches. Innocent, its roots deep within the soil and can survive any storm and just...

    In the early 70's when I was about 8

    or 9, I stayed with an elderly Aunt. We shared a passion - stamp collecting! She lived by the sea about 20 miles from my home. Anyway, spent a whole weekend with her. One morning, in response to some conversation,she said (and this is a rough quote): "I want you to know...

    Someone once, after hearing me talk about what

    my future career plans were, nodded their head in agreement and said, "You know, I can see you doing that actually." It was the closest to validated I have ever felt!

    My best friend in Paris is Marie Fougeray.

    Her mother paid me a compliment, which will always be up there with the best things said to me. She was so gracious in her observation.

    From a Stranger...

    I was in high school and I knew I didn't have the emotional strength to be there that day. So I walked to a local McDonalds to sit and wait until my parents went to work. (It was the only place open.) I was feeling very lonely, and a group of old women were in the...

    He told me he would switch bodies with me

    so that he could take the illness and I could have his healthy body. He is very strong and healthy. It made me cry. This was three years ago. We still keep in touch over the phone and email. That's the thing. The kindest thing someone said to me came from someone who I haven't...

    Real Love

    I don't know if it's the nicest thing someone said to me but it did leave an impression on me.  I was backpacking in Paris when this little old lady stops me to tell me in French that I was very, very pretty.   She then said that I reminded her of herself when she was young...

    It's when a guy I dated

    while I was in college, who, after we broke up, told softly me during a weird moment that I was beautiful. And then later on while dancing at a club, we were holding each other, and the silence spoke volumes. I still have respect for the person after all this time.

    This may sound weird

    but one of my bestfriends said that if she was a dog, she would hope I would take care of her and be her dog parent/adopt her. I thought that was really great because if she had no power to speak/communicate she would trust me to take care of her and give her a good life.

    My ex-best friend once told me,

    "You're the best friend I've ever had. You're badass, strong, you'll kick anyone's *** who tries ******* with me or yourself." A week later he found a new best friend and left me, but hey, it was still nice what he said.

    "I don't ask you anything.
