“When things break, it’s not

the actual breaking that prevents them

from getting back together again. It’s because

a little piece gets lost, the two remaining ends

couldn’t fit together even if they wanted to.

The whole shape has changed.”

  1. Yeah, seems about just right! And even of they do, the crack remains, as visible as ever. Nicely penned John 🙂

    So right…


  3. I love this quote by John Green. It’s definitely true especially in relationships that don’t work. It reminds me of an impressively deep movie I just finished watching “Nocturnal Animals.” It was very intense and great with a lot of subtext. You’d appreciate the movie especially if you’re a writer. If you haven’t already watched it, I recommend it. It’s on Redbox if you are near one.

    FYI I nominated you for the “One Lovely Blog Award” after I was nominated. Congrats! 🙂
