Quotes from The Fault in Our Stars Movie

I've been feeling low lately. I'm thinking of going back to the corporate world to see if I still got that fire in me. Yeah, it's the middle age syndrome.  I have not exercise for 2 months now because I'm kind of depress. All I do is look at the pictures in Facebook. Since I'm glued on FB, I saw that many of my FB friends wrote on their wall how touching The Fault in Our Stars movie.  The Fault in Our Stars is the movie version of John Green's 2012 young-adult bestseller. I'm not familiar with the book but my daughter said her Ate Maizi has this book. And the book is also translated in different languages because it's a bestseller.

I needed a good cry so I asked Julia yesterday to come with me to watch The Fault in Our Stars at Shang Cinema.

The cinema is filled with young adult, mostly college students. There are a few of moms in the crowd, who chaperoned their daughters. Mine is a different scenario - Julia chaperoned me! (wink).

So what can I say about the movie? I silently cried (nahihiya akong marinig ng anak ko e). Any movie with dying people makes me cry for I lost my mother in 1993. 

The Fault in Our Stars is based on John Green‘s wildly popular young-adult novel about two cancer-stricken teenagers who fall hopelessly in love with one another.  The movie is a heart-breaker for sure but it's also full of sudden warmth and humor, with many sweet and romantic quotable quotes. The film is directed by Josh Boone, starring Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort. 

I'm not going to spoil the movie for you but I'd like to leave some profound quotes from The Fault in Our Stars...

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

2. “That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.” 

3. “There’s no way of knowing that your last good day is your last good day. At the time, it is just another good day.”

4. “Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them. Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.” 

5. “I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

6. “The world is not a wish-granting factory.”

7.  “You have a choice in this world, I believe, about how to tell sad stories, and we made the funny choice.”

8. “Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.”

9. “There is no shortage of fault to be found amid our stars.”

10. “Our fearlessness shall be our secret weapon.”

11. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things.”

12. “I will not tell you our love story, because—like all real love stories—it will die with us, as it should.”

13. “You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”

14. “It is the nature of stars to cross.”

15. "Almost everyone is obsessed with leaving a mark upon the world. Bequeathing a legacy. Outlasting death. We all want to be remembered. I do, too. That's what bothers me most, is being another unremembered casualty in the ancient and inglorious war against disease. I want to leave a mark. The marks humans leave are too often scars." - Augustus

  1. By just reading your intro, I knew you're being emotional these days. Are you PMSing or just having those days when you feel like wanting for something.. :) cheer up beautiful!

    I won't read even the quote because we postponed our supposed date yesterday because kiddos are kind of lazy prepping up themselves. I hope we watch it today and the maleficent. lol.

    I knew this is a kind of movie that will make you cry. Kris announced it in their late night show about how the movie made her in tears. If you need a good cry, I'm here, I'll cry with you. :)


Thank you for the joyful comments!
