Oh wow, such a long time since the last time I posted! I did not have any phone signal for a few days last week when I was out of town celebrating Eid. Eid Mubarak, everyone!
Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters' love story is bound to make you drown in a puddle of tears. Well, not literallly, but you get what I mean. I know I did. There are a bunch of heartwarming, and heartbreaking, quotes from this book. Some of the ones I like: "As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” "Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book." "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 other 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 grateful."
