How do you just stop being terrified of getting left behind and ending up by yourself forever and not meaning anything to the world?
What is the point of being alive if you don’t at least try to do something remarkable?
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.
Like the way the sun is right now, with the long shadows, and that kind of bright, soft light you get when the sun isn’t quite setting? That’s the light that makes everything better, everything prettier, and today, everything just seemed to be in that light.
John Green, Looking for Alaska
Being in a relationship, that’s something you choose. Being friends, that’s just something you are.

It is easy to forget how full the world is of people, full to bursting, and each of them imaginable and consistently misimagined.

We need never be hopeless because we can never be irreparably broken.

And it occurred to me that the voracious ambition of humans is never sated by dreams coming true, because there is always the thought that everything might be done better and again.
John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
I feel like my life is so scattered right now. Like it’s all these small pieces of paper and someone’s turned on the fan, but talking to you makes me feel like the fan’s been turned off for a little bit, like things could actually make sense. You completely unscatter me, and I appreciate that so much.
