"I want to be in a relationship where you telling me you love me is just a ceremonious validation of what you already show me."
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free (via hqlines)
"One day it just gets better. There’s no explanation or reason why. You just wake up and you’re not angry anymore."
"You were red. You liked me cause I was blue. You touched me and suddenly I was a lilac sky and you decided purple just wasn’t for you."
"We think we understand the rules when we become adults but what we really experience is a narrowing of the imagination."
Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication.
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.
"I will bring you flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want to do with you
what spring does with the cherry trees."
Pablo Neruda, “Every Day You Play” (via aworldofexperiences)
