My Top Ten Favorite John Green Quotes

john green quote 11

I cannot express my love for John Green. I can’t put all of that into words. He is internet’s gift to the world, and he is one of the cleverest, wittiest, funniest people I had the pleasure to read and watch (he has a YouTube channel). But, arguably one of my favorite things about him are his profound, beautiful quotes that never cease to amaze me. So, without further ado, here are my favorite John Green quotes! (Not in any particular order, because I couldn’t make myself do that.)

1.) “It always seemed so ridiculous that people want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like basing your breakfast cereal on color instead of taste.” john green quote 2

2.) “True love will triumph in the end, which may or may not be a lit. But if it is a lie, then it’s the most beautiful lie we have.” john green quote 3 3.) “The marks humans leave are often scars.” john green 4

4.) “The world may be broken, but hope is not crazy.”

5.) “Nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-your-chair-can’t-control-yourself love it. When people call people nerds, mostly what they’re saying is “You like stuff.” Which is not a good insult at all. Like, “You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness.” ”

6.) You spend your whole life stuck in the labyrinth thinking about how you’ll escape it someday… and imagining the future keeps you going, but you never do it. You just use the future to escape from the present.”

7.) “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”

8.) “You can love someone so much… but you can never love people as much as you can miss them.”

john green quote 8

9.) “What a treacherous thing to believe that a person is more than a person.”

john green quote 9

10.) “Those awful things are survivable because we are as indestructible as we believe ourselves to be.”

Well, there you go. My favorite quotes by John Green. I love basically everything he says and writes, but these are the quotes that really made me stop and think. And in a world where your brains are expected to go one thousand miles an hour, that’s something.

    Quotes and John Green, they always go together! Everything he writes or speaks becomes a memorable quote! Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes sad, sometimes true and realistic, sometimes just plain beautiful. But it’s always something memorable. ❤
