“My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.” – The Fault In Our Stars

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.” – Paper Towns
“At some point, you just pull of the band-aid and it hurts. But then it’s over and you’re relieved.” – Looking For Alaska

“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.” -The Fault In Our Stars
“What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.” – Paper Towns
“What is the point of being alive, if you don’t try something remarkable?” – Looking For Alaska
