Today's question is: What is your favorite quote and why?
Right now I’m loving John Green’s quote on being a nerd from one of his video blogs (which I highly recommend watching because this man is HILARIOUS). I’m loving it so much, I’ve made it my resolution for 2014. I blogged about it in my New Years Resolution post, but basically John defines “nerd” as someone who is unironically enthusiastic about the things he or she loves, whether it’s books, movies, TV shows, anything that brings them joy. They don’t downplay their excitement when the next movie adaptation of their favorite book comes out in an effort to be “cool.” That’s the kind of person I want to be in 2014.
Here's the direct quote: "…nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh yeah that purse is okay’ or like, ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, ‘You like stuff’, which is just not a good insult at all, like ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’."
What's your favorite quote, bookish or otherwise?
