Hello, fellow Nerdfighters. If you have read Looking For Alaska, I'd like to see the quotes you liked most or found to be the most meaningful as well as the page number where they can be found. I know there have been other discussions like this, but I wanted to start one in which we shared the page numbers as well. This is one of my favorite books, just behind Paper Towns. 

Thanks for contributing :)

kind of obvious... but, "how will I ever get out of this labryinth?" I know my spelling sucks
also when the colonel says something about hating the weekday warriors and the asian guy (I can't remember his name) says, "dude, your girlfriend is a weekday warrior"

in his defense, he did kinda hate his girlfriend.

This is on page 88.
"Truth or Dare, Pudge?"
"Hook up with me"
So I did.

The lines are so simplistic but lead up to such an important action that gets shadowed by the After part of the book, but that event is left as an ever returning ghost in Pudge's mind.
"And then something invisible inside her snapped, and that which had come together commenced to fall apart" (196).

I know it's rather depressing, but I really relate to it.

hmm... you know, this quote may be the origin of 'the strings' from paper towns.

I was just thinking that

I knew there was some quote that I loved about what was her commencing to fall apart, but I couldn't find it. So thank you for putting that up. A lot.

DFTBA!!! (though I don't see why I'm telling a Nerdfighter to DFTBA, because we DFTBA always!)

page number?????????????


Lol. I'm just reading through these nice, relatively serious quotes and then I come across, ""because no one can catch the motherfucking fox"" It made my day. Anyway, some of my favourites are:


"After all this time, it still seems to me like straight and fast is the only way out- but I choose the labyrinth. The labyrinth blows, but I choose it." pg. 216


"Because I will forget her, yes. That which came together will fall apart imperceptibly slowly, and I will forget, but she will forgive my forgetting, just as I forgive her for forgetting me and the Colonel and everyone but herself and her mom in those last moments she spent as a person." pg. 219


"That's the mystery, isn't it? Is the labyrinth living or dying? Which is he trying to escape- the world or the end of it?" pg. 19


There are more, but this comment is officially too long.

ROTFL!!!!!  I laughed so hard the day my son read this to me I almost ran us off the road!  Every once in a while when I'm stressed or feeling down my son will sneak up behind me and recite this line.  It's the ONLY time I let him curse...and it's worth it! :-)
