Quotes of the Week, September 28th 2015

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.

    1. I think John Green is the master of writing emotional, deep narratives/ issues and managing to make them inspirational and humorous, all the while holding the sincerity and truth. He strings sentences together in an almost poetic way.
