So this is it.
And today here are my last favorite quotes from “The Fault In Our Stars” by John Green!
“It seemed like forever ago, like we’d had this brief but still infinite forever. Some infinities are biger than other infinities.” -Hazel, 233
“Writing does not resurrect. It buries.” -Van Houten, 266
Here the theory on the book where they explain how everyone remembers Shakespeare but nobody knows -neither remembers- the people or special person he wrote about…
“My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.” -Augustus, 311
“People will say it’s sad that she leaves a lesser scar, that fewer remember her, that she was love deeply but not widely. But it’s not sad (…) It’s triumphant. It’s heroic. Isn’t that the real heroism? Like the doctors say: First, do no harm.” -Augustus, 312
From my point of view this is SO relevant because I believe that as humans we are obsessed with “fame” and just as Augustus feared oblivion we are afraid of not being widely known. But at the end, how much does that matters? Heroic, as he said, is to be deeply loved (at least by one person) not to be “known” by a forgetful-crowd.
“The real heroes anyway aren’t the people doing things; the real heroes are the people NOTICING things, paying attention.” -Augustus, 312
“She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you: You know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I’m so lucky to love her.” -Augustus, 313
“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world (…) but you do have some say in who hurts you.” -Augustus, 313
“I like my choices. I hope she likes hers.” -Augustus, 313
