On the last day of the challenge, I dedicate TFIOS a quote from TFIOS itself:
Sometimes you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.
This is exactly what TFIOS and the Harry Potter series did to me. I can’t imagine what a kind of person I’d be had these two amazing books not come into my life. The whole world must read these books because they teach us more than any person, dead or alive, any encyclopaedia or any institution can!
Today, for the umpteenth time, thank you, RavenclawSam for recommending these life-transforming books to me! I can’t thank you enough! Nor can I thank JKR and John Green for conjuring fandoms that shall never die. These awesome people gave us something to love, learn from and cherish, ALWAYS.
Another favourite from TFIOS:
Much of my life has been devoted to trying not to cry in front of people who loved me, so I knew what Augustus was doing. You clench your teeth. You look up. You tell yourself that if they see you cry, it will hurt them, and you will be nothing but a sadness in their lives, and you must not become a mere sadness, so you will not cry, and you say all of this to yourself while looking up at the ceiling, and then you swallow even though your throat does not want to close and you look at the person who loves you and smile.

I’ve not been an active blogger lately. I just don’t feel like writing. It’s just emptiness. Two friends insisted that I write again; one friend was re-reading my old posts yesterday. I knew I must not let them down. I have to come back. Hopefully, I have.
Thank you, Anything and Everything, for nominating me for the 3 days, 3 quotes challenge! Since most of the bloggers I know have already taken it up, I’m not going to nominate anyone but I’m definitely going to post some of my favourite quotes for the upcoming three days. What’s more, I’ve decided to dedicate it to The Fault in Our Stars. Here’s the quote for day 1:
I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.
