There comes a time when we realize that our parents cannot save themselves or save us, that everyone who wades through time eventually gets dragged out to sea by the undertow-that, in short, we are all going.
John Green- Looking for Alaska
Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia. (…) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth, thinking about how you’ll escape it one day, and how awesome it will be, and imagining that future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape the present.
what's your favorite John Green book besides tfios and looking for Alaska? (I've already read that ones)
I liked Abundance of Katherines second best.
Why do you say to "at least" read Looking for Alaska before Paper Towns?
As to why is under the cut:
Hi. Saw this on your blog. It seemed like forever ago, like we've had this brief but still infinite forever. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.” Can you, uhm, help me find what chapter is this quote came from? I just can't remember reading this quote. Yeah. Pity me. Haha thanks =))) “
I think what you’re looking for is a line from the eulogy on pages 259-260.
So I recently finished the fault in our stars and really loved it so I want to read john greens other books, which one would you suggest first?
I always recommend reading them in the order they were published. Looking for Alaska (at least read it before Paper Towns), Abundance of Katherines, Will Grayson Will Grayson, Paper Towns, and then Let it Snow.
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.
John Green (The Fault in Our Stars)
49 weeks a year I was a massive nerd with cooties and frenching me was seen like a social catastrophe. But 3 weeks a year I would go to summer camp and suddenly I was in the middle. I wasn’t like hot or anything, but I was in the middle! And sometimes people wanted to be my girlfriend, and french me.
You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.
