"Booklist ended up being the best thing that ever happened to me, except for Sarah. And there’s no way Sarah and I would have ended up together without Booklist, because she probably wouldn’t have fallen in love with a bitter, pantsless, unemployed hermit."
John Green (2005)
"John, for me, has always been the baseline of what was cool and valuable and important. If he liked a band, I’d buy all of their CDs and memorize them and become a bigger fan than he ever was."
"The measure of a friendship is not its physicality but it’s significance. Good friendships, online or off, urge us toward empathy; they give us comfort and also pull us out of the prison of our selves."
John Green, introduction to This Star Won’t Go Out (via mediocreparagon)
