Great Perhaps

May 23, 2012

“Francois Rabelais. He was a poet. And his last words were “I go to seek a Great Perhaps.” That’s why I’m going. So I don’t have to wait until I die to start seeking a Great Perhaps.”

“I was born into Bolívar’s labyrinth, and so I must believe in the hope of Rabelais’ Great Perhaps.”

Both quotes from John Green’s Looking For Alaska, which was one of my favourite reads of 2011 (and also of all time).
