Learn Mandarin Online from Teachers and Students
This list is taken from @ichinesetweets (quite a good person to follow on Twitter for Chinese sentences. Some of them are a bit overly romantic but hey, I wake up in the UK and there are always a few to read through). I've translated them (the best I can!).
世界上最美的10件事. Shìjiè shàng zuìměi de 10 jiàn shì - The 10 most beautiful things on Earth.
1.初吻 - Chūwěn - First Kiss

5.每次看到那个人心里七上八下的感觉；Měi cì kàn dào nàgè rén xīnlǐ qī shàng bā xià de gǎnjué - The feeling every time you see 'the one'. (七上八下 = at 6s and 7s - your heart in is a mess!)
