I’m doing this week’s quotes of the week a little differently today. Usually, I choose a theme or topic and choose two quotes that inspire or motivate me in relation to that theme or topic. Today, however, I am choosing two quotes from the author John Green. Both quotes comes from his ‘The Fault in our Stars’ novel, and I am in love with them.
‘I fell in the love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.’ ~ Hazel Grace, The Fault in our Stars by John Green.
In my humble opinion, this is the perfect surmise of falling in love. I wanted so badly to be able to capture love in a sentence just like Green, and I have had this quote written in my inspiration notebook for a long, long time.
‘You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.’ ~ Augustus Waters, The Fault in our Stars by John Green.
A true quote if ever there was one. Love is about jumping in head first. It’s about placing your trust and heart into someone else’s hand, hoping they treat it kindly.
