You're both the fire and the water that extinguishes it. You're the narrator, the protagonist, and the sidekick. You're the storyteller and the story told. You are somebody's something, but you are also your you.
- Aza Holmes, John Green's Turtles All The Way Down

"You remember your first love because they show you, prove to you, that you can love and be loved, that nothing in this world is deserved except for love, that love is both how you become a person, and why."
John Green, Turtles All The Way Down.

Azok a legjobb beszélgetések, amikor nem is emlékszel, miről volt szó, csak arra, milyen érzés volt.

"My name's Dante," he said.
That made me laugh harder. "Sorry," I said.
"It's okay. People laugh at my name."
"No, no," I said. "See, it's just that my name's Aristotle."
His eyes lit up. I mean, the guy was ready to listen to every word I said.
"Aristotle," I repeated.
Then we both kind of went a little crazy. Laughing.

"In the best conversations, you don't even remember what you talked about, only how it felt. It felt like we were in some place your body can't visit, some place with no ceiling and no walls and no floor and no instruments."
-John Green, Turtles All the Way Down

"But when people understand one another without speaking, it can often leave them with very little to talk about, don’t you think?"

Anybody can look at you. It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.

Sometimes I wondered why she liked me, or at least tolerated me. Why any of them did. Even I found myself annoying.

Like I can't find the deep down part of me that's pure or unsullied or whatever, the part of me where my soul is supposed to be.

“We never really talked much or even looked at each other, but it didn't matter because we were looking at the same sky together, which is maybe even more intimate than eye contact anyway. I mean, anybody can look at you. It's quite rare to find someone who sees the same world you see.”

When John Green wrote “but the really scary thing is not turning and turning in the widening gyre; it’s turning and turning in a tightening gyre. It’s getting sucked into a whirlpool that shrinks and shrinks and shrinks your world until you’re just spinning without moving, stuck inside a prison cell that is exactly the size of you, until you realise you are not actually in the prison cell. You are the prison cell.” and when he concluded with hope, “Spirals grow infinitely small the farther you follow them inward, but they also grow infinitely large the farther you follow them out.”

Don't you just hate when you read a book and its good? And it makes you feel emotions? And you just sit there like "the nerve of this motherfucker"

"Does it hurt?" he asked. For some reason, I wanted to tell him the truth. "Whether it hurts is kind of irrelevant."
