All Quotes found on Goodreads

'"I might be in love with you." He smiles a little. "I'm waiting until I'm sure to tell you, though."
-Veronica Roth, Divergent

“I know you aren't perfect. But it's a person's imperfections that make them perfect for someone else.”
-Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

  “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.” 
-John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.” 
-Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

“Remember, we're madly in love, so it's all right to kiss me anytime you feel like it.”  
-Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

“The universe has yet to take my wishes under consideration.” 
-Jessica Spotswood, Born Wicked

 “Thomas Edison's last words were 'It's very beautiful over there'. I don't know where there is, but I believe it's somewhere, and I hope it's beautiful.” 
-John Green, Looking for Alaska

 “I wish friends held hands more often, like the children I see on the streets sometimes. I'm not sure why we have to grow up and get embarrassed about it.” 
-Stephanie Perkins, Anna and the French Kiss

 “That's always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people want to be around someone because they're pretty. It's like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead of taste.”
 -John Green, Paper Towns

 “Each day means a new twenty-four hours. Each day means everything's possible again. You live in the moment, you die in the moment, you take it all one day at a time.”
 -Marie Lu, Legend

  7. I think it is very incompetent of me that I have not read any of John Green's books (save co-written Will Grayson, Will Grayson) and shall have to rectify that. Love The Hunger Games quote. ♥
