QOTD - Miles "Pudge" Halter

Credit has to be given where credit is due. I just finished Looking for Alaska, an incredible book geared for the teen set, written by John Greene. As my blog illustrates I have an obsession with quotes, firmly believing we can learn so much from the wisdom of others. The main character, Miles "Pudge" Halter, has an obsession with Famous Last Words of great historical figures, the endless sprinklings of these quotes kept my curiosity peaked. Yet, it is the ending of this book with an introspective essay by which Miles attempts to answer how he will escape the labyrinth of suffering, which is life, that this book soundly defines the meaning of resolution & perseverance which is within the character of all individuals. We just need to tap into it!

Passage from Miles "Pudge" Halter's final essay
in Looking for Alaska
Yeah this isn't a quote, kind of a bit longer, but SO inspiring!
