Looking For Alaska

John Green

Yes, Sir, I am quoting your book. Please say it nicely since I also made an illustration of it. Here are some quick quotes from John Green’s Looking for Alaska:

“Francois Rabelais. He was this poet. And his last words were ‘I go to seek a Great Perhaps.’ That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.” – Miles “Pudge” Halter

“Because you simply cannot draw these things out forever. At some point, you just pull off the Band-Aid and it hurts, but then it’s over and you’re relieved.”

“Y’all smoke to enjoy it. I smoke to die.” – Alaska Young

“I may die young,” she said. “But at least I’ll die smart.” – Alaska Young

“Sometimes you lose a battle. But mischief always wins the war.” – Alaska Young

“I mean, it’s stupid to miss someone you didn’t even get along with. But, I don’t know, it was nice, you know, having someone you could always fight with.” – Chip “the Colonel” Martin

“My question is: Why do good people get rotten lots in life?” – Chip “the Colonel” Martin

“We can’t love our neighbors till we know how crooked their hearts are.” – Alaska Young

Thomas Edison’s last words were: “It’s very beautiful over there.” I don’t know where there is, but I believe it’s somewhere, and I hope it’s beautiful.
