“It would be a privilege to have my heart broken by you.”

From: The Fault in Our Stars

Genre: Movies/Books

Who said it?: Augustus Waters

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from The Fault in Our Stars. The book was written by John Green and it was adapted into a feature film in 2014. The film is about Hazel Grace Lancaster (played by Shailene Woodley), a terminally ill cancer patient who falls in love with Augustus Waters (played by Ansel Elgort), a bone cancer survivor and amputee.

The quote comes fairly early in the film. Hazel is attracted to Agustus and the feeling is mutual. However, as she knows she’s going to die because of the cancer, she tries to keep him at arms distance because she doesn’t want him to feel depressed when she eventually passes. This is when Augustus delivers the quote.

 

Geek wisdom: Falling in love and being with that person is taking risk since there is no guarantee the love you feel now will last forever. But the feeling of being with the person you love, even if it’s just for a little while, is worth it.

Most of my childhood (and adult life) was spent doing a lot of geeky stuff: watching TV, playing video games and going to the movies. To some, it may have been a waste of time. Well, to me, it has made me what I am today... a geeky adult. I actually write for a couple of blogs, namely: geekwisdom.wordpress.com 3rdworldgeeks.com gamemoir.com Please check them out!
