"It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it."

"Teenagers have more intense reading experiences because they’ve had fewer of them. It’s like the first time you fall in love. You have a connection to that first person you fell in love with because it was so intense and unprecedented."
-John Green (via kushandwizdom)
"Leaving feels good and pure only when you leave something important, something that mattered to you. Pulling life out by the roots. But you can’t do that until your life has grown roots."
-Paper Towns (John Green)
I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
"I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling.

I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you."
-John Green, The Fault in Our Stars (via canhappenlove)
