lovebirds-in-the-summer said: hey i heard that the quote i am in love with cities i have never been to and people i have never met is from paper towns but i just read it and i never saw it help? :)

Yeah. It turns out that quote is not actually in the book. It’s been attributed to Paper Towns in various places all over the internet, but never actually shows up in the book. I have no idea who actually came up with it, but it was not John Green.

I felt so detached from all of this shit, all this high-school-is-ending-so-we-have-to-reveal-that-deep-down-we-all-love-everybody bullshit.

Talking to a drunk person was like talking to an extremely happy, severely brain-damaged three-year-old.

And then he seemed to forget about Cassie and me both, as if the idea of kissing Cassie Hiney felt better than actually kissing her ever could.

It all seemed so trivial, so embarrassing. It all seemed like paper kids having their paper fun.

I had never seen Ben drunk. In tenth grade, I once drank a bottle of pink “wine” at a band party. It tasted as bad going down as it did coming up. It was Ben who sat with me in Cassie Hiney’s Winnie-the-Pooh—themed bathroom while I projectile-vomited pink liquid all over a painting of Eeyore, I think the experience soured both of us of our alcoholic pursuits. Until tonight anyway.

Question

fandomly-obsessed said: What page is the "I'm in love with cities I've never been to......." quote on in Paper Towns?

I don’t remember right off where that one is. Is that something Margo said? It sounds like something Margo would say. If so, it’s in either the very beginning or the very end.

We were just lying there, sleeping. God help me. The only teenaged guy in America who dreams of sleeping with girls, and JUST sleeping with them.

Question with 1 note

Anonymous said: What are some really good quotes that show hoe Q is withdrawn, like he only likes hanging out with Ben and Radar?

I don’t know any off the top of my head, but I feel like there would be some in the first part of the book. Anyone want to help anon out?

Question with 5 notes

Anonymous said: IS QUENTIN JACOBSEN GAY? While I was reading a girl told me he turns out to be gay, after I finished reading, I saw no evidence that proved this to be true besides the kissing. Furthermore, theres not much on the internet to answer my question. I never can figure out why human beings feel the need to be so infuriating in their actions towards other human beings, but I don't enjoy this aspect of ourselves.

As far as I know, Quentin Jacobsen is not gay. If anyone else has heard otherwise, please let me know because that is information I am very interested in.

Like a metaphor rendered incomprehensible by its ubiquity, there was room enough in in what she had left me for endless imaginings, for an infinite set of Margos.

And maybe this was what I needed to do above all. I need to discover what Margo was doing when she wasn’t being Margo.

Quote with 70 notes

These are things I cannot imagine, and I realize I cannot imagine them because I didn’t know Margo. I knew how she smelled, and I knew how she acted in front of me, and I knew how she acted in front of others, and I knew that she liked Mountain Dew and adventure and dramatic gestures, and I knew that she was funny and smart and generally MORE than the rest of us. But I didn’t know what brought her here, or what kept her here, or what made her leave. I didn’t know what she did at night, with the shades down, with the door locked, in the sealed privacy of her room.
