Here’s a list of some of the quotes i absolutely loved from the book, “The Fault In Our Stars”. Feel free to share some of your favorite quotes from your favorite books!
“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.”
“Oh, I wouldn’t mind, Hazel Grace. It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”
“I’m a grenade and at some point I’m going to blow up and I would like to minimize the casualties, okay?”
“Much of my life had been devoted to trying not to cry in front of people who loved me, so I knew what Augustus was doing. You clench your teeth. You look up. You tell yourself that if they see you cry, it will hurt them, and you will be nothing but a Sadness in their lives, and you must not become a mere sadness, so you will not cry, and you say all of this to yourself while looking up at the ceiling, and then you swallow even though your throat does not want to close and you look at the person who loves you and smile.”
“But I believe in true love, you know? I don’t believe that everybody gets to keep their eyes or not get sick or whatever, but everybody should have true love, and it should last at least as long as your life does.”
“there is no shortage of fault to be found amid our stars”
“Sometimes people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them.”
“You say you’re not special because the world doesn’t know about you, but that’s an insult to me. I know about you.”
“You get all these friends just when you don’t need friends anymore.”
“the world wasn’t made for us, we were made for the world”
“Funerals…are for the living.”
“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”
“There will come a time when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings remaining to remember that anyone ever existed or that our species ever did anything. There will be no one left to remember Aristotle or Cleopatra, let alone you. Everything that we did and built and wrote and thought and discovered will be forgotten and all of this will have been for naught. Maybe that time is coming soon and maybe it is millions of years away, but even if we survive the collapse of our sun, we will not survive forever. There was time before organisms experienced consciousness, and there will be time after. And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that’s what everyone else does.”
“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
“Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you.”
