Okay...


Over the weekend I went to see The Fault in Our Stars. Talk about a movie that will move you! It was fantastic. It was cast wonderfully. Shailene Woodley was wonderful and Ansel Elgort was very charming.  It's an incredible love story that entices you emotionally the entire time. Here's the movie's synopsis straight from IMDB ~

Hazel and Gus are two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional, and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.



Most of you probably already know that this movie was based off of the novel by John Green. It was a hit with the young adult crowd that it was written for. I wish I had read it. Sometimes it's hard to take a great novel and turn it into a movie.  There have been several books that I've read and then seen the movie version and been very disappointed.  From what I can see on Twitter and just by leaving the movie theater, the screenwriters got this movie version right!  They got it so right, in fact, that I still want to read the book.

I was surfing around Google to find images for today's post and I came across some amazing quotes ~








Most of these quotes you hear in the dialog of the movie, but some of them you don't.  For example, the quote "And then the line was quiet, but not dead..." This line was turned into something visual.  Seeing it written down, however, makes that particular scene so much more moving to me. That's why I want to read the book.  Oh and this quote about books ~ 

Then there are these two quotes that are the best things ever!  Do you ever hear someone say something and then think to yourself, "man, I wish I had thought to say that!"  Or hear something and think, "that's exactly how it feels!" ~ 

And then of course there is this one ~
