Some fave quotes from #TFIOS

I am obsessed, can NOT wait for TFIOS movie to come out. Ever since I read the book I have been obsessed and forcing all my friends to read the book.

Page to Premiere put together some FAVE QUOTES in preparation for the film and I wanted to share it with you:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

1. You Could Be An Ax Murderer

“You should see it,” he said. “V for Vendetta, I mean.”
“Okay,” I said. “I’ll look it up.”
“No. With me. At my house,” he said. “Now.”
I stopped walking. “I hardly know you, Augustus Waters. You could be an ax murderer.”
He nodded. “True enough, Hazel Grace.”

2. It’s A Metaphor

“Oh, my God. Let me just assure you that not being able to breathe? SUCKS…”
“They don’t kill you unless you light them,” he said as Mom arrived at the curb. “And I’ve never lit one. It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.”
“It’s a metaphor,” he said.

3. I Fell In Love

As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.

4. I’m In Love With You

“I’m in love with you,” he said quietly.
“Augustus,” I said.
“I am,” he said…”I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. 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.”

5. It Demands To Be Felt

“That’s the thing about pain,” Augustus said, and then glanced back at me. “It demands to be felt.”

6. Our Little Infinity

“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.”

7. My Thoughts Are Stars

But I can’t pull my thoughts together, Van Houten. My thoughts are stars I can’t fathom into constellations.

8. I Like My Choices.

You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes her.
I do, Augustus.
I do.

Need a tissue? I know I do!
