The Fault in Our Stars movie finally opens in theaters tomorrowÃ¢â‚¬”thank goodness because it feels like we've watched the trailer a bajillion times. (And so has the rest of the world, apparently: With 309,000 "likes" and counting, it's the most "liked" trailer on YouTube ever.) In case you've been living under a rock, TFIOS is the heartwarming, heart-wrenching, and at times hilarious story of two teenagers with cancer who fall in love. Experience a touch of its brilliance with these eight lines, straight from the book.
"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once."
"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."
"I'm on a rollercoaster that only goes up, my friend."
"'Sometimes people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them,' I said.
Isaac shot me a look. 'Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway.'"
"You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and I'm grateful."
"My thoughts are stars I can't fathom into constellations."
"But it is the nature of stars to cross, and never was Shakespeare more wrong than when he had Cassius note, 'The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.'"
"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."
