Nothing is more sublime.”

A fantastic book that extols the good in people and condemns corruption of organized religion. My favorite moment is when the text condemns using the Bible and the teachings of Jesus as political fodder - cause lord knows we hear enough of that.

“Good women are no fun... The only good woman I can recall in history was Betsy Ross. And all she ever made was a flag.”
Mae West

John Green
“Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You can see how fake it all is. It's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. I mean, look at it, Q: look at all those culs-de-sac, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were built to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.”
John Green, Paper Towns
