Quote: If only we can all be that eloquent

“I’m in love with you” he said quietly.

“Augustus” I said.

“I am,”he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not into the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void , and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we’re all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”

Quote: the Alpha and Omega

The heartbreaking reality of loving someone so irrevocably, while knowing the extent of pain you are causing them.

“I hated hurting him. Most of the time I could forget about it, but the inexorable truth is this: They might be glad to have me around, but I was the alpha and omega of my parents’ suffering.”

– John Green, The Fault in Our Stars
