Alaska’s Labyrinth

How will you — you personally — ever get out of this labyrinth of suffering? What is your cause for hope? 

If only we could see the endless string of consequences that result from our smallest actions. But we can’t know better until knowing better is useless. 

The other day I finished reading Looking for Alaska by John Green. It wasn’t my favorite John Green book by far, and yet it did leave quite the impression on me, especially Pudge’s musings on Alaska, hope, forgiveness, and life/death at the end. Although I did not like the ending. But that’s a thing for another day. I just wanted to share a couple of quotes from LfA that resonated with me. Take them as you will.
