10 Quotes from ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ That Will Break Your Heart
Not many people are lucky enough to be so good at something. It buries. I know about you. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it-or my observations of it-is temporary? Or is the only value in passing the time as comfortably as possible? What should a story seek to emulate […]? A ringing alarm A call to arms?
I went to Support Group for the same reason that I'd once allowed nurses with a mere eighteen months of graduate education to poison me with exotically named chemicals: I wanted to make my parents happy. Hazel may be a grumpy teen, but despite her griping and groaning, she still goes to Support Group. Because her parents tell her to. She's always looking out for them, even when it makes the little time she has left on earth a little less awesome for her. I hadn't been in proper school in three years.
Hazel, usually incredibly rational for an adolescent, especially in the case of fending off Augustus's romantic advances, thinks this when Augustus reads to her from her favorite book after placing the post about the swing set. Hazel is not completely sold, however, keeping her love secret from Gus and denying him both a kiss in the park and a return "I love you" on the airplane to Amsterdam.

Depicting Hazel as a devoted reader also makes the book's reader feel akin to her, an important quality to establish early on in a book for young adult audiences, especially one about a subject that will likely be beyond many readers' capacity for empathy.
All efforts to save me from you will fail. It portrays death truthfully. You die in the middle of your life, in the middle of a sentence. I think the universe is inprobably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it-or my observation of it-is temporary? And in freedom, most people find sin. All of us.
The only solution was to try to unmake the world, to make it black and silent and uninhabited again, to return to the moment before the Big Bang, in the beginning when there was the Word, and to live in that vacuous space alone with the Word. Hazel has very strange pain regulation methods. Do you think she thinks these big thoughts because she's contemplating her mortality? Or is she just a deep kid through and through? I tried to tell myself that it could be worse, that the world was not a wish-granting factory, that I was living with cancer not dying of it, that I mustn't let it kill me before it kills me 8.
