You have a choice in this world, I believe, about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choice …


i just finished reading the fault in our stars. and i absolutely loved it.

it’s v.v. touching. without being tear – jerking or maudlin.

my particularly favorite lines in 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.

and by now you may already know i am a hopeless romantic in disguise.
