- being alive
This is such a powerful, yet totally simple line. It's from "The Fault in Our Stars." Now, this is totally up to interpretation but I think this quote is about how careless we can be. Sometimes we don't see the damage that we do to other people. What we don't realize is that we touch everyone's lives in one way or another. Sometimes we hurt people. This is just one of the amazing quotes from John Green.
I really like this quote because it's true on so many levels. "It is so hard to leave until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world." This quote is from John Green's "Paper Towns." Sometimes leaving something/someone can be the only way to set yourself free. It's hard to leave when you have so many reasons to stay, but once you do, you won't look back.
3 Being Alive
We should all live by this quote! "What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?" We only get one life and it's our choice what we do with it. Doing something remarkable doesn't mean traveling the globe (although yes, that would be remarkable) but instead, doing acts that you're proud of. Leaving a legacy behind.
This is such a beautiful quote. "What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person." Often times we build someone up to be this "bigger-than-life" person who can do no wrong. That's never the case. Every person is capable of mistakes and most of the time, we make them. We need to accept that about people. Believing someone is more than just a person will only bring you heartache.
This quote is from "The Fault in Our Stars." I swear, that book left me in tears! The quote reads, "That's the thing about pain, it demands to be felt." Indeed it does. Pain does not go away just by ignoring it. Pain goes away once you feel it and deal with it. Emotions can be so demanding sometimes, huh?
This quote is from "An Abundance of Katherines." It reads, "You can love someone so much... but you can never love people as much as you can miss them." I like this quote because of its simplicity. Loving someone is different than missing someone. Missing someone will always outweigh what you feel when loving someone. Do you agree?
I absolutely love this quote from "The Fault in Our Stars." It reads, "My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations," and it's said by Augustus Waters to Hazel Grace. The thing I love about this is that Augustus is telling Hazel how he sometimes can't put his thoughts together and articulate them. However, the way he says just that is already beautiful.
