I’ve been nominated by the always fantastic Grace (check out her awesome and inspiring blog :P) for the Three Day Quote Challenge!
The rules are simple: post a quote a day for three days and nominate 3 people everyday. It’s actually really lenient, I’ve seen. I’m going to post two quotes a day for three days, because I love quotes and I can limit my favorites to three. Six should do, right?
Day 1, Quote 1:
“You don’t get to choose if you get hurt in this world, old man, but you do have some say in who hurts you.”
-John Green, The Fault In Our Stars
This quote speaks out to me because there have been several people in my life that have tried to hurt me. For a while I let it hurt me, let it bring me down. Then after reading this book, I realized that I controlled my feelings, and how they reacted to the people aforementioned. This quote has probably shaped my personality more than I realize.
I found this book recently after it was published, before it grew popular. I guess that means I have a special relationship with the book (that’s a thing, right? O.o) When I seen other people with the novel when it was in everyone’s hands, I felt a weird anger, because I knew they wouldn’t love the book as I do. (I’m much more tolerant now, thank goodness)
Thanks for listening to my unnecessary rambling!
It’s time for the nominations now!
Until next time, cheerio! (
oh my am I ever original?)
