Favorite quote, at the moment.
"Here's what's not beautiful about it: from here, you can't see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. It's not even hard enough to be made out of plastic. It's a paper town. I mean look at it, Q: look at all those cul-de-sacs, those streets that turn in on themselves, all the houses that were bult to fall apart. All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm. All the paper kids drinking beer some bum bought for them at the paper convenience store. Everyone demented with the mania of owning things. All the things paper-thin and paper-frail. And all the people, too. I've lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters."
"What a treacherous thing to believe a person is more than a person."
"The only way out of the labyrinth of suffering is to forgive."
~Looking For Alaska
"If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can't know better until knowing better is useless."
~Looking For Alaska
"It is a lie that people who love each other must know everything about each other. Love must occasionally allow for a gap. "
Don't you just hate when someone says, "I <3 you."?
I mean seriously, all they're saying is "I less than 3 you."
Woot. Someone less than 3's you. Celebrate, why don't ya.
