    Emily Dickinson
    “I tasted life.”
    Emily Dickinson

    Emily Dickinson
    “Hope is the thing with feathers
    That perches in the soul,
    And sings the tune without the words
    And never stops at all”
    Emily Dickinson, The Complete Poems


  • #3
    John Green
    “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.”

    John Green
    “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


  • #7
    John Green
    “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.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska


  • #8
    John Green
    “What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something remarkable?”
    John Green, An Abundance of Katherines


  • #9
    John Green
    “I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. 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 hurricane.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska

    John Green
    “Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were "I go to seek a Great Perhaps." That's why I'm going. So I don't have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska


  • #11
    John Green
    “It's not because I want to make out with her."
    Hold on." He grabbed a pencil and scrawled excitedly at the paper as if he'd just made a mathematical breakthrough and then looked back up at me. "I just did some calculations, and I've been able to determine that you're full of shit”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska

    John Green
    “I'm not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last thing is.”
    John Green, Paper Towns


  • #13
    John Green
    “He was gone, and I did not have time to tell him what I had just now realized: that I forgave him, and that she forgave us, and that we had to forgive to survive in the labyrinth. There were so many of us who would have to live with things done and things left undone that day. Things that did not go right, things that seemed okay at the time because we could not see the future. If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless. And as I walked back to give Takumi’s note to the Colonel, I saw that I would never know. I would never know her well enough to know her thoughts in those last minutes, would never know if she left us on purpose. But the not-knowing would not keep me from caring, and I would always love Alaska Young, my crooked neighbor, with all my crooked heart.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska

    John Green
    “That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfeast cereals based on color instead of taste.”
    John Green, Paper Towns


  • #17
    John Green
    “I didn’t need you, you idiot. I picked you. And then you picked me back.”
    John Green, Paper Towns


  • #18
    John Green
    “When did we see each other face-to-face? Not until you saw into my cracks and I saw into yours. Before that, we were just looking at ideas of each other, like looking at your window shade but never seeing inside. But once the vessel cracks, the light can get in. The light can get out.”
    John Green, Paper Towns


  • #19
    John Green
    “It always shocked me when I realized that I wasn’t the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska

    John Green
    “There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I'm likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn't trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful.”
    John Green, The Fault in Our Stars


  • #23
    John Green
    “Here's to all the places we went. And all the places we'll go. And here's to me, whispering again and again and again and again: iloveyou”
    John Green, An Abundance of Katherines


  • #24
    John Green
    “I am going to take this bucket of water and pour it on the flames of hell, and then I am going to use this torch to burn down the gates of paradise so that people will not love God for want of heaven or fear of hell, but because He is God.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska


  • #25
    John Green
    “I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska


  • #26
    John Green
    “It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.”
    John Green, Paper Towns

    John Green

    John Green
    “Sometimes I don't get you,' I said.
    She didn't even glance at me. She just smiled toward the television and said, 'You never get me. That's the whole point.”
    John Green, Looking for Alaska


  • #29
    John Green
    “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. And then there are books like An Imperial Affliction, which you can't tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like betrayal”
    John Green, The Fault in Our Stars


  • #30
    John Green
    “Maybe there's something you're afraid to say, or someone you're afraid to love, or somewhere you're afraid to go. It's gonna hurt. It's gonna hurt because it matters.”
    John Green, Will Grayson, Will Grayson
