"I can’t talk about our love story, so I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this: There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than others infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m thankful."

"It was sure a privilege to love him."
- John Green (The Fault In Our Stars)
"Much of my life had been devoted to trying not to cry in front of people who loved me, so I knew what Augustus was doing. You clench your teeth. You look up. You tell yourself that if they see you cry, it will hurt them, and you will be nothing but a Sadness in their lives, and you must not become a mere sadness, so you will not cry, and you say all of this to yourself while looking up at the ceiling, and then you swallow even though your throat does not want to close and you look at the person who loves you and smile."
- John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
"You realize that trying to keep your distance from me will not lessen my affection for you. All efforts to save me from you will fail."
- John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
"It always shocked me when I realised that I wasn’t the only person in the world who thought and felt such strange and awful things."

"With every revelation some people respond by making the world better and some respond by making it worse. Which is true of religious revelations and secular ones alike. The revelation isn’t the problem. We are."

"How will we ever find our way out of this labyrinth of suffering?"
