Quotes: “Paper Towns”
“Cidades de Papel”, pela Editora Intrínseca
“Did you know that for pretty much the entire history of human species, the average life span was less than thirty years? You could count ten years or so of real adulthood, right? There was no planning for retirement. There was no planning for a career.
There was no planning.
No time for planning. No time for a future. But then life spans started getting longer, and people started having more and more future, and so they spent more time thinking about it. About the future.
And now life has become the future.
Every moment of your life is lived for the future…”
“And on the last day, the bad days become so difficult to recall
The town was paper, but the memories were not.
All the things I’d done here, all the love and pity and compassion and violence and spite, kept welling up inside me.”
“That’s always seemed so ridiculous to me, that people would want to be around someone because they’re pretty. It’s like picking your breakfast cereals based on color instead os taste.”
“All those paper people living in their paper houses, burning the future to stay warm.”
“I leave, and the leaving is so exhilarating I know I can never go back.
But then what?
Do I just keep leaving places, and leaving them, and leaving them, tramping a perpetual journey?”.
