The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green | Quotes and Summary - On Books | Book PodcastAll efforts to save me from you will fail. It portrays death truthfully. You die in the middle of your life, in the middle of a sentence. I think the universe is inprobably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed.

The only solution was to try to unmake the world, to make it black and silent and uninhabited again, to return to the moment before the Big Bang, in the beginning when there was the Word, and to live in that vacuous space alone with the Word.
