Stories from books are far better than adaptations of movies. This I can fathom why.
Books, I think, need justice either way. And to make that happen, movies producers and staffs should read the books well so it can play the best parts needed. Just like the case of the movie-adaptation of The Fault in Ours Stars.
What I love about the movie is that it lives my expectation and it showcase what I visualized in the book. Though there is still one part wrongly shown, still, the overall movie is not a waste of time. It will really make you fall in love, believe in your dreams, loving your family and understand the meaning of true love.
From powerful cast and overpowering lines, TFIOS will give you reason to enjoy life and understand pain. But most of all, it will show you the value of every moment and to seize every opportunity available. A good book which is well-written. John Green really deserves my praise. But I really recommend you to read the book first before watching the movie. Thumbs-up for this! 🙂
I will share here the powerful lines you will get from the book. Enjoy! 🙂
- “As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.” (Hazel Grace)
- “I’m in love with you,” he said quietly. “Augustus,” I said. “I am,” he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. “I’m in love with you, and I’m not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I’m 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 there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we’ll ever have, and I am in love with you.”
- “You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world…but you do have some say in who hurts you. I like my choices.”
- “There are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. There are days, many of them, when I resent the size of my unbounded set. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, 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.”(Hazel Grace)
- It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.” (Augustus Waters)
- “Some people don’t understand the promises they’re making when they make them,” I said. “Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That’s what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.”
- “It’s a metaphor, see: You put the killing thing right between your teeth, but you don’t give it the power to do its killing.” (Augustus Waters)
- “Because you are beautiful. I enjoy looking at beautiful people, and I decided a while ago not to deny myself the simpler pleasures of existence” (Augustus Waters)
- “You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I’m grateful.”
- “But I believe in true love, you know? I don’t believe that everybody gets to keep their eyes or not get sick or whatever, but everybody should have true love, and it should last at least as long as your life does.”
- “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations.”
- “That’s the thing about pain. It demands to be felt.”
