22 Hank And John Green Quotes That All Lost Young Adults Need To Read

Hank and John Green, AKA the VlogBrothers, have been posting vlogs for over eight years, and in that time, they’ve dropped some incredible wisdom and hilarity. I’ve collected a handful of their greatest quotes for all the fellow Nerdfighters (and future Nerdfighters) out there that need a little boost in their day.

1. “True love will triumph in the end – which may or may not be a lie, but if it is a lie, then it’s the most beautiful lie we have.” –John


2. “What is life other than a limited time span in which we get to do stuff?” –Hank


3. “Will this be on the test? Yeah, about the test. The test will measure whether you are an informed, engaged, and productive citizen of the world, and it will take place in schools and bars and hospitals and dorm rooms and in places of worship. You will be tested on first dates, in job interviews, while watching football, and while scrolling through your Twitter feed. The test will judge your ability to think about things other than celebrity marriages, whether you’ll be easily persuaded by empty political rhetoric, and whether you’ll be able to place your life and your community in a broader context. The test will last your entire life, and it will be comprised of the millions of decisions, that when taken together, make your life yours. And everything — EVERYTHING — will be on it.” –John


4. “The most natural thing in the world is complexity. … The whole world is grey, and if you just appreciate that, then it’s beautiful.” –Hank


5. “The Venn diagram of ‘boys who don’t like smart girls’ and ‘boys you don’t want to date’ is a circle.” –John


6. “I’m just trying to remember that the world is a good place, and the number of hugs per gunshot victim is very, very, high.” –Hank


7. “Unicorns! Which everyone knows were left off the ark for a reason!” –John


8. “I live in the present due to the constraints of the space-time continuum.” –Hank


9. “We often just accept the things that we like and complain a lot about the things that we don’t like. But if we could, like, intensely dwell on the really great things in life the way we intensely dwell on the negative things in life, I think that would be fantastic.” –Hank


10. “But the truth of the matter is, to live a good life, as a good person, it doesn’t matter how you got there. It just matters that you do.” –Hank


11. “It’s almost as if our society values opinion more than it values knowledge.” –Hank


12. “The world may be broken, but hope is not crazy.” –John


13. “According to my mom, the meanest thing Hank ever did to me was try to kill me with a hammer and the meanest thing I ever did to him was spill some red cough syrup on his bed spread and hug him too hard.” –John


14. “We are all differently broken, semi-functional, rusted out love machines.” –Hank


15. “And maybe that’s what we should be trying for at the end of our lives… for the world to be less good without us.” –Hank


16. “I’m a giant squid of anger.” –John


17. “I’ve learned that humans generally get less miserable when we collaborate.” –John


18. “High school is not destiny… The course of your life isn’t decided. Ever. Most of the time it’s not like there’s like one fork in the road and you choose one or you choose the other, there are hundreds of forks in the road every day that you’re alive. College is also not destiny… your twenties are not destiny! Your thirties are not destiny. Destiny is not something that happens all at once. It’s something that happens only in retrospect.” –John


19. “I don’t know a perfect person, I only know flawed people who are still worth loving.” –John


20. “Pizza. The answer is always pizza.” –John


21. “You do not exist to please someone else. You exist for your own sake.” –Hank


22. “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.” –John TC mark
