“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars but in ourselves.”
“You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen by affection for you.”
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
“Augustus,” I said.
“I am,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
“The world is not a wish-granting factory.”
“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”
“Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”
“The marks humans leave are too often scars.”
Just finished reading The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. My mind has been blown. Outlook on life has kinda changed a little. But I think this is probably the first time I have ever been so in love with a book that isn’t of a sci-fi genre. (Also the first time a book has made me cry). Think John Green really did an amazing job writing with the mind of a 16 year old girl with cancer. And Augustus Waters. Oh. My. God. I am in love with a fictional character. His wit and his love for Hazel ahhh I cannot….(you’re probably judging me for this) but I get very attached to my books and shows.
Also, new found love for a different kind of genre. Usually I only read sci-fi books like the Divergent series or like The Hunger Games or like the Alex Rider series which isn’t very sci-fi-ey. But I realised the thing that keeps me reading is the love/relationship thing they usually have going on haha (other than alex rider, that one is just cool). Ahh need a new book to read…suggestions?
