Have you read or seen The Fault in Our Stars?
There are so many great quotes and moments in this book and movie.
I loved the book for several reasons, but mostly because Juliana loved it so much and read it 8 times. It was hard for me to read it just once. I finished the book a short while ago and promised her I would read it before watching the movie with her. She had to wait a very long time.
Tonight was the night to finally snuggle on the couch and watch it together. The movie made me cry, but not in the sappy parts. I cried when they got to Amsterdam because I’m a sap (according to Juliana) and wanted to be back there again walking on the canals.
I’m also weird in that when I read a book, I take forever and take notes. I don’t know why I take notes, but I guess I hope I’ll remember the main parts that way. But I don’t. At least I have my notes and the good news is, I found them again before writing this post.
Here are a few of my favorite sayings from the book:
“Worry is another side effect of dying.”
“The world is not a wish granting factory.”
“Two emotions – love and fear.” I choose love.
“Amsterdam was a city designed for movement and activity.” Love, love, love Amsterdam!
“There is no try. There is only do.”
“I believe the universe wants to be noticed.” I see you.
“I’m on a roller coaster that only goes up.” I wish.
“Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”
“Grief does not change you, Hazel. It reveals you.” Grief is a tragic, beautiful side of life. We are so vulnerable when we are grieving and we discover our true nature that sometimes is masked by our daily routines and reality.
