You don't get tired of looking at her: You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have a say in who hurts you.

  • Gus: (A letter from Gus to Van Houten is being read silently by Hazel) "Mr. Van Houten, I'm a good person but a shitty writer. You're a shitty person but a good writer. I think we'd make a good team. I don't want to ask you for any favors but if you have the time, and from what I saw, you have plenty, please fix this for me. It's a eulogy for Hazel. She asked me to write one, and I'm trying. i just... I could use a little flair. See, the thing is, we all want to be remembered. But Hazel's different. Hazel knows this truth. She didn't want a million admirers. She just wanted one. And she got it. Maybe she wasn't loved widely, but she was loved deeply. And isn't that more than most of us get? When Hazel was sick, I knew I was dying, but I didn't want to say so. She was in the ICU, and I snuck in for 10 minutes, and I sat with her. before I got caught. Her eyes were closed. Her skin, pale. But her hands were still her hands. Still warm, and her nails were painted this dark blue-black color, and I just held them. And I willed myself to imagine a world without us, and what a worthless world that would be. She's so beautiful. You don't get tired of looking at her. You never worry if she's smarter than you, because you know she is. She's funny without ever being mean. I love her. God, I love her. I'm so lucky to love her, Van Houten. You don't get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have a say in who hurts you. And I like my choices. I hope she likes hers. Okay, Hazel Grace?"
  • Hazel: "Okay."

I am in love with you

  • Gus: "I am in love with you."
  • Hazel: "..."
  • Gus: "You heard me."
  • Hazel: "Augustus..."
  • Gus: "I am in love with you. And I know that love is just a shout into the void and that Oblivion is inevitable. And that we're all doomed. And that one day all of our labors will be returned to dust. And I know that the sun will swallow the only Earth we will ever have. And I am in love with you.
  • Hazel: (still shaking head)
  • Gus: "Sorry."
  • Hazel: (light chuckle)

I won't accept that: Otherwise what's the point?

  • 'The Fault in Our Stars' (2014)
  • Gus: "God?"
  • Hazel: "Maybe."
  • Gus: "How about angels?"
  • Hazel: "Mmm, no."
  • Gus: "Afterlife?"
  • Hazel: "Mmm... No. Well, maybe. I don't know. I guess I wouldn't go as far as to say "no", but I would like some evidence."
  • Gus: (light chuckle)
  • Hazel: "What about you?"
  • Gus: "Absolutely."
  • Hazel: "Really?"
  • Gus: "I mean, not like a heaven where you ride on a unicorn all day and live in a mansion made of clouds, but yes, I definitely believe in something. I mean, otherwise... what's the point?"
  • Hazel: "Maybe there is no point."
  • Gus: "I won't accept that."
  • (Both smile)

Whatever comes let it come,
whatever stays let stay, what goes let go,
always keep quiet, and always adore Self:
this is the essence of living skillfully
in the world of appearance.
During all activities of life
is to accept whatever comes
and not care about what does not come.

Things will come so enjoy them and be happy
Let the play happen by the Supreme Power;
you will be taken care of.
Be free to be happy, love has no traps.
If you are happy all will be happy,
if you suffer, all will suffer,
if your mind smells bad others will be affected.
Keep yourself happy in peace, Light, Wisdom, Consciousness
This is your responsibility.
Be happy and have compassion 
and live hand and hand with nature.
This makes birth worthwhile.
Start from Heart and see that all arises from Heart.
Always do this, Always be This.

Life behind things: Sometimes there is so much beauty in the world. I feel like I can't take it. And my heart is just going to cave in.

  • [Taken from the movie 'American Beauty' (1999)]
  • Ricky: "You want to see the most beautiful thing I've ever filmed?"
  • (Watching a video of plastic bag swirling by the wind)
  • Ricky: "It was one of those days where it's a minute away from snowing and there's this electricity in the air. You can almost hear it. Right? And this bag was just dancing with me. Like a little kid, begging me to play with it. For 15 minutes. That's the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know that there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video's a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember. I need to remember. Sometimes there is so much beauty in the world. I feel like I can't take it. And my heart is just going to cave in."

Beauty

  • [Taken from the movie 'American Beauty' (1999)]
  • (Funeral cars are passing)
  • Jane: "Is that a funeral?"
  • Ricky: "Have you ever known anybody who died?"
  • Jane: "No. Have you?"
  • Ricky: "No. But I did see this homeless woman who froze to death once. Just lying there on the sidewalk. She looked really sad. I got that homeless woman on videotape."
  • Jane: "Why would you film that?"
  • Ricky: "Because it was amazing."
  • Jane: "What's amazing about it?"
  • Ricky: "When you see something like that, it's like God is looking right at you, just for a second. And if you're careful, you can look right back."
  • Jane: "And what do you see?"
  • Ricky: "Beauty."

"Everything in life is temporary. If things are going good, enjoy it because it won’t last forever. If things are going bad, don’t worry. It can’t last forever either."
