That’s a quote I just saw on my dashboard. Apparently it’s from The Fault in Our Stars, which I haven’t read yet. For reasons, it made me think of one of my favorite quotes of all time. From Elias Canetti.
“His head is made of stars, but not yet arranged into constellations.”
Was this some sort of accident…? Or is he deliberately paraphrasing Canetti for a reason? Do I need to read the book to understand? Or was it just old fashioned plagiarism?! Is John Green going to be expelled from writing?!
Does anyone know?
THIS. I found out about Elias Canetti’s quote a few weeks ago and have asked John about it in every way possible, but I haven’t gotten an answer yet.
I wasn’t sure if Augustus was slyly referencing Canetti, or if John was, or if this was just a totally unintentional coincidence.
