John Green
“Thank you for explaining that my eye cancer isn't going to make me deaf. I feel so fortunate that an intellectual giant like yourself would deign to operate on me.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

John Knowles
“We were careless and wild, and I suppose we could be thought of as a sign of the life the war was being fought to preserve. Anyway, they were more indulgent toward us than at any other time; they snapped at the heels of the seniors, driving and molding and arming them for the war. They noticed our games tolerantly. We reminded them of what peace was like, of lives which were not bound up with destruction.”
John Knowles, A Separate Peace

“All I ever wanted was to pick apart the day, put the pieces back together my way..”
Jason Myers, The Mission

John Green
“You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world...but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

John Green
“The only person I really wanted to talk to about Augustus Water's death with was Augustus Waters.”
