"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be
intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you
believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay
Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are
pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You
walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for
himself."
— John Green 


 "When adults say, "Teenagers think they are invincible" with that sly, stupid smile
on their faces, they don't know how right they are. We need never be hopeless,
because we can never be irreparably broken. We think that we are invincible because
we are. We cannot be born, and we cannot die. Like all energy, we can only change
shapes and sizes and manifestations. They forget that when they get old. They get
scared of losing and failing. But that part of us greater than the sum of our parts
cannot begin and cannot end, and so it cannot fail."
— John Green (Looking for Alaska) 



 "What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person."
— John Green (Paper Towns) 


 "What is the point of being alive if you don't at least try to do something
remarkable?"
— John Green (An Abundance of Katherines) 


 "Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were "I go to seek a Great
Perhaps." That's why I'm going. So I don't have to wait until I die to start seeking
a Great Perhaps."
— John Green (Looking for Alaska) 


 "I'm not saying that everything is survivable. Just that everything except the last
thing is."
— John Green (Paper Towns) 


 "When I look at my room, I see a girl who loves books."
— John Green (Looking for Alaska) 



 "Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of the human species, the
average life span was less than thirty years? You could count on ten years or so of
real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement, There was no planning
for a career. There was no planning. No time for plannning. No time for a future. But
then the life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more
future. And now life has become the future. Every moment of your life is lived for
the future--you go to high school so you can go to college so you can get a good job
so you can get a nice house so you can afford to send your kids to college so they
can get a good job so they can get a nice house so they can afford to send their kids
to college."
— John Green (Paper Towns) 



"You don't remember what happened. What you remember becomes what happened."
— John Green (An Abundance of Katherines) 



 "Talking to a drunk person was like talking to an extremely happy, severely
brain-damaged three-year-old."
— John Green (Paper Towns) 



 "…because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff…
Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like
jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. Hank, when people
call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is ‘you like stuff.’ Which is
just not a good insult at all. Like, ‘you are too enthusiastic about the miracle of
human consciousness’."
— John Green 



 "I try to live life so that I can live with myself."
— John Green 



"I figured something out. The future is unpredictable."
— John Green (An Abundance of Katherines) 



 "It always shocked me when I realized that I wasn’t the only person in the world
who thought and felt such strange and awful things."
— John Green 



 "If you don't imagine, nothing ever happens at all."
— John Green (Paper Towns) 



 "There is no Them. There are only facets of Us."
— John Green 



 "Radar threw his books into his locker and shut it. Then the din of conversation
around us quieted just a bit as he turned his eyes toward the heavens and shouted,
"IT IS NOT MY FAULT THAT MY PARENTS OWN THE WORLD'S LARGEST COLLECTION OF BLACK
SANTAS."
— John Green (Paper Towns)
