hazel grace lancaster quotes

Just before the Miracle, when I was in the ICU and it looked like I was going to die and Mom was telling me it was okay to let go, and I was trying to let go but my lungs kept searching for air, Mom sobbed something into Dad’s chest that I wish I hadn’t heard, and that I hope she never finds out that I did hear. She said, ‘I won’t be a mom anymore.’ It gutted me pretty badly.

about the blogger [three/fifteen] relationships: Hazel & Augustus
“She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you, you know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers.”

What else? She is so beautiful. You don’t get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she is smarter than you: You know she is. She is funny without ever being mean. I love her. I am so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices. I hope she likes hers.

I think I know why Hazel and Augustus were so deeply in love. It is because they fell in love with each other’s mind. It was beauty that attracted them in the first place, but when they got to know each other better that’s when the magic happened..
And that’s what I want.
Someone to love me for my mind, my ideas, my crazy theories, my thoughts and the way I see the world. I want someone who will find my inner world beautiful not just my appearance..
