Quotes About Staring At The Sun

"Love"Im in love with you," he said quietly."Augustus,"I said."I am," he said. He was staring at me, and I could see the corners of his eyes crinkling. "Im in love with you, and Im not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. Im in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that were 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 well ever have, and I am in love with you.""Augustus," I said again, not knowing what else to say. It felt like everything was rising up in me, like I was drowning in this weirdly painful joy, but I couldnt say it back. I couldnt say anything back. I just looked at him and let him look at me until he nodded, lips pursed, and turned away, placing the side of his head against the window." - Author: John Green

Lee after the initial Confederate victories on day one of the Battle of Gettysburg." - Author: Michael Shaara
