In real life, love has to be possible. Even if it is not returned right away, love can only survive when the hope exists that you will be able to win over the person you desire.

Wherever you will go,
I will let you down,
But this lullaby goes on.

The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours

I regret killing Augustus, I should have killed the cancer instead and let him and Hazel live happily ever after.

"I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again."
Lewis Carroll (via realizes)

It was December twenty-third.

The snow plummeted down with the most cautious breeze.  Wavering by the edge of the moonlit woods was a pink-nosed girl dressed comfortably in a puffy red jacket. She gazed upward with the biggest brown eyes, admiring the pines with a stare of curious wonder.  All worries fell from her mind. In that moment, nothing mattered. In that moment, innocence grabbed the 9 year old by the hand and pulled her forward.

The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.
