Shawn Mendes has been the highlight of everyone’s day, moreso with his recent revelation of his relationship with Camila Cabello. The two world-renowned singers have had fans clamoring for them to date even before everyone knew it was possible, and the recent development keeps everyone’s hearts beating faster and faster.

The 21-year-old is seen as a dream boyfriend by many people. And hardcore Mendes followers — dubbed the “Shawn Mendes Army” — wait on every word he utters.

The Canadian singer-songwriter has some very unique insights about the world, some hidden within his songs and others he said in interviews. Here are some of the most prominent quotes he said over the past few years:

  1. “An empty coffee cup is sometimes just as beautiful as a full one.”

  2. “Tell me what’s inside of your head. No matter what you say, I won’t love you less.”

  3. “I think it’s not about what you say; it’s about what you don’t say.”

  4. “People say to me, ‘What are you going to be doing in five years?’ The thing is, I don’t care! It’s what I’m doing today that matters.”

  5. “It’s extremely important just to keep things positive and happy as much as we can ... I think it’s important that singers, actors, or whatever use our voice to spread positive messages as much as we possibly can.”

  6. “If you’re positive and really excited and enthusiastic about what you’re doing, it’s going to happen, and it’s going to happen big time."

  7. “I’m tortured because I care. I’m always upset about not doing things as good as I think I could have because I care.”

  8. “My advice to anyone with a dream is to never stop pursuing it.”

  9. “Let’s make mistakes and don’t look back, it’s now or never.”

  10. “I work so hard to make that sure I’m successful. If you’re positive and really excited and enthusiastic about what you’re doing, it’s going to happen, and it’s going to happen big time.”

  11. “Love your people! Tell the people you love you REALLY love them. Do it. It’s impossible to be too kind or too loving.”

  12. “True friends are never forgotten, they live within our hearts and souls forever and always, dancing on our stage of memories.”
