Looking for Alaska by John Green
I remember finishing this book and just staring off into space, thinking. I’m not sure how or why the book affected me so much, but it left such an impression on me. It’s so insanely quotable and characters were interesting and unique. I can’t put to words how I feel about this book, but I highly recommend you give it a shot. I’m a John Green hipster and read all of his books years before he was popular, so he holds a special place in my heart. Here are some of my favorite Looking for Alaska quotes.
“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.”
“Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”
“I wanted to be one of those people who have streaks to maintain, who scorch the ground with their intensity. But for now, at least I knew such people, and they needed me, just like comets need tails.”
“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.”
