The Fault in Our Stars: Favorite Quotes

The_Fault_in_Our_Stars

Hey everybody! I feel like I miss you all and miss writing tremendously.

So I have continued my journey of reading TFiOS (genius, catchy acronym) and I’m coming across some great lines that are being added to my favorite quotes list. Interestingly enough, while searching relevant images, many of my favorite quotes seem to be other peoples favorites as well. Most images are provided, and some, I will happily type and add to the list.

Its been interesting. I’m reading this book much slower than others I have recently read but it’s definitely not due to me enjoying it any less. I could even say, some I read quickly, though I liked, this one I have come to fancy more so far.

I believe I must be taking it all in. Previously, I had placed the book down and devoured another in one night, The Selection. I do know why though. I was having a rough week and reading this emotionally heavy story (TFiOS) was something I wisely chose not to partake in momentarily. I decided to reach over for a fun, light-hearted YA romance instead.

Returning to this story now, I’m choosing to savor it, relish in the small moments, and words said. I decided to pause and dedicate this post to some quotes that are becoming my favorite. I called this Part One because I have yet to finish the book. I’m on page 162 (about mid-way).

I have genuinely enjoyed the interactions between Hazel and Augustus. The dialogue is so clever and witty, you feel your insides smile throughout many of them. I love all the fanart I have come across in relations to this book. So many of them have captured beautifully, and perfectly the essence of John Green’s imagination which he put pen to paper for our indulgence.

“I am 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 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.”

“The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.”

“I am tasting the stars…

We have bottled all the stars this evening, my young friends.”

So this is exactly, funny enough, where I am in the book. This very moment…

I am enjoying this book and dreading whats to come. I fear certain conclusion that are being assumed within my brain but I refuse to entertain them because I’m not ready for them. 

On a personal note…I believe subconsciously, my mind is taking this story in slowly, with precaution. Of all the times to be reading this, I’m doing so on the month, where it will be a year since a loved one unexpectedly left us and it concluded with cancer.

Even though written, it’s as though I just said that out loud, which I had yet to do and will now quickly dismiss because I am not ready and have a week and a half till it must be faced; experienced…

Once finished, part two of favorite quotes, will soon follow. I’m sure there is much I missed from the first few chapters which I remember fondly laughing, or smiling in public to myself about.

Well, hope you have a beautiful night. Go outside and look up at the stars…

Happy Reading, Living, Loving…

<3, Des

 RECENT UPDATE: (June 16, 2014)

Hey everyone stumbling onto this post. I wrote this post A WHILE back and since then (especially with the movie recently coming out) have fallen in love with this story even more. Interesting, I believe when I first wrote this, I intended to create a Part two of quotes. Seeing where I was in the story when I ended this piece, I realize why Part two never happened…I was probably mourning after finishing the story.

As some of you may know by now, I have the privilege of being a part of the Page to Premiere team. One of my features is “So Quotable” — a weekly book to movie adaptations we love feature where we reminisce and quote about our favorites…through Gifs! Well last week, in celebration of The Fault in Our Stars week, we released a

    1. Yes! Funny enough, I had heard about it before reading it, and wasn’t particularly excited or that interested in seeing it. Now that I have read it…oh yea, I am most DEFINITELY gonna go see it 🙂

    1. I’ll see what I can find. Most of them floating around Google weren’t connected to the original artist 😦 I wish and will still try to find them, as I would like to link them and give credit where credit’s due. Thanks for the request!

    1. Okay. 😉 The movie was a faithful adaptation. You will really enjoy the book. So well written, great and genuine character voices. Thanks so much for stumbling by and reading the post! Happy writing!

      1. This book/movie is both sad and mysterious, I just love the connection between Augustus and Hazel. Knowing that this could be real life for people, this book/movie touches me. I also love when Hazel sees herself as a “grenade” because they tell her she’s not a grenade, but I should stop I hate spoiling things!!!
