My mother worked with crazy teenagers in juvenile detention centers and prisons. I think that’s why she never really worried about me—as long as I wasn’t ritually decapitating gerbils or urinating on my own face, she figured I was a success.

I felt significantly more tired than I had back at 5:55, and I would have skipped school, except that I had perfect attendance, and while I realized that perfect attendance is not particularly impressive or even necessarily admirable, I wanted to keep the streak alive.

I didn’t need you, idiot. I picked you. And then you picked me back. And that’s like a promise. At least for tonight. In sickness and in health. In good times and in bad. For richer, for poorer. TIll dawn do us part.

We’re not going to BREAK anything. Don’t think of it as BREAKING IN to SeaWorld. Think of it as visiting in the middle of the night for free.

You’d better be calling me to say that there are eleven naked honeybunnies in your house, and that they’re asking for the Special Feeling that only Big Daddy Ben can provide.

So, long story short, Chuck Parson kept me from ever dancing the fox-trot, which doesn’t seem like a particularly horrible thing to do to a sixth-grader.

Clearly, Chuck Parson was no Aristotle when it cam to logic. But he was six three and 270 pounds, which counts for something.

I always felt like you had to be important to have enemies. Example: Historically, Germany has had more enemies than Luxemburg. Margo Roth Spiegelman was Germany. And Great Britain. And the United States. And czarist Russia. Me, I’m Luxembourg. Just sitting around, tending sheep, and yodeling.

Anonymous asked: Why do you only post quotes from Paper Towns?
I HAVE WAITED A YEAR AND A HALF FOR SOMEONE TO ASK THIS.
In an effort to not post a quote twice, I decided to read through all the source material myself. So I’m re-read through all of the books, picking the quotes out myself, and posting them in the order I find them. That’s why if you look back through the blog there’s a massive chunk of Looking for Alaska quotes, then a chunk of Abundance of Katherines, and we are now currently in the middle of a chunk of Paper Towns quotes. Next it’ll be Will Grayson, Will Grayson, ect. I’m actually very glad I decided to do it this way, because it gives me the chance to find great quotes you don’t really see around Tumblr very often.

It was a lame string, for sure, but it was the one I had left, and every paper girl needs at least one string, right?

I’ve lived here for eighteen years and I have never once in my life come across anyone who cares about anything that matters.

Here’s what’s not beautiful about it: from here, you can’t see the rust or the cracked paint or whatever, but you can tell what the place really is. You see how fake it all is. It’s not even hard enough to be made of plastic. It’s a paper town.

Here’s a tip: you’re cute when you’re confident. Less when you’re not.
