Rebecca today, girls!

John Green is one of my personal favorite authors, and many of my friends love him as well. He is a complete nerd and wonderful writer. This means he has a wonderful way with words. Here are some quotes of his, some from his books and some just being things he said. Enjoy!

“Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we're quoting.” 
― John Green

“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive.” 
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

“You can love someone so much...But you can never love people as much as you can miss them.” 
― John Green

“That's the thing about pain...it demands to be felt.” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

"What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.” 
― John Green, Paper Towns

“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

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

“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.” 
― John Green, Looking for Alaska

“…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff… Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.” 
― John Green

“Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said.

"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“You don't remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened.” 
― John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“Some people have lives; some people have music.” 
― John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson

“If you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all.” 
― John Green, Paper Towns

“That’s part of what I like about the book in some ways. It portrays death truthfully. You die in the middle of your life, in the middle of a sentence” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“The venn diagram of boys who don’t like smart girls and boys you don’t wanna date is a circle.” 
― John Green

“And all at once I knew how Margo Roth Spiegelman felt when she wasn't being Margo Roth Spiegelman: she felt empty. She felt the unscaleable wall surrounding her. I thought of her asleep on the carpet with only that jagged sliver of sky above her. Maybe Margo felt comfortable there because Margo the person lived like that all the time: in an abandoned room with blocked-out windows, the only light pouring in through holes in the roof. Yes. The fundamental mistake I had always made—and that she had, in fairness, always led me to make—was this: Margo was not a miracle. She was not an adventure. She was not a fine and precious thing. She was a girl.” 
― John Green, Paper Towns

“That's who you really like. The people you can think out loud in front of.” 
― John Green, An Abundance of Katherines

“Maybe 'okay' will be our 'always” 
― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
