This man is literally one of my favourite authors and I'm so sorry but this chapter is probably going to be painful and I'll probably burst into tears by the end of it, I'm sorry!

“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” - The Fault in Our Stars.

“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.” - John Green in a Youtube video.

“That's the thing about pain," Augustus said, and then glanced back at me. "It demands to be felt”  - The Fault in Our Stars.

“Books are the ultimate Dumpees: put them down and they’ll wait for you forever; pay attention to them and they always love you back.”  - An Abundance of Katherines.

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.” - The Fault in Our Stars.

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.”  - Looking for Alaska.

“When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless, because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail.” - Looking for Alaska.

“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 Fault in Our Stars. (Sorry, that's just the sound of me shrieking in pain)

“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope Hazel likes hers." - The Fault in Our Stars (Yup, that's definitely the sound of my body hitting the floor due to crimpling emotional pain I feel deep inside my very soul)

“So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”  - Looking for Alaska. 

**

“The marks humans leave are too often scars.” - The Fault in Our Stars.
