"The Fault in Our Stars" movie quotes bring the best-selling novel of the same name by John Green to the big screen. The romance movie follows a young girl with terminal cancer whose life story is rewritten after meeting a new friend. Josh Boone directed the film using a screenplay by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber. "The Fault in Our Stars" opened in the United States on June 6, 2014.

In "The Fault in Our Stars," Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) is a teenager with terminal cancer and a bleak outlook on life. While she did undergo a miracle procedure that extended her life by a few years, her prognosis is still death, and sooner rather than later. Her mother (Laura Dern) tries to get her out of her mental funk by having her join a support group for teens with cancer.

At the group, Hazel meets Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort) who almost instantly falls in love with her. She is quite reluctant to form any kind of relationship with him, knowing that because her time on this earth is limited, any relationship would end in hurt feelings. But he doesn't give up and the relationship they do form changes both of their lives forever.

The romantic drama joins theaters packed with other films such as "Edge of Tomorrow," "A Million Ways to Die in the West," "Maleficent," "Night Moves," "Filth," "Blended," "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "The Immigrant," "The Love Punch, "The Angriest Man in Brooklyn, "Million Dollar Arm," "Godzilla," "Palo Alto," "Chef," "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Moms' Night Out," "Devil's Knot," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2."

Augustus Waters: "There's always that possibility. Come on, Hazel Grace, take a risk."
Hazel Grace Lancaster: "I don't… Really? That is disgusting!"
Augustus Waters: "What?"
Hazel Grace Lancaster: "What? Do you think that that's cool or something? You just ruined this whole thing."
Augustus Waters: "The whole thing?"
Hazel Grace Lancaster: "Yes, this whole thing."
Augustus Waters: "Oh man!"
Hazel Grace Lancaster: "Even though you have freaking cancer, you are willing to give money to corporation for the chance to acquire even more cancer? Let me just tell you that not being able to breathe sucks!"
Augustus Waters: "Hazel Grace, they don't hurt you unless you light them."
Hazel Grace Lancaster: "Huh?"
Augustus Waters: "I've never lit one. It's a metaphor, see. You put the thing that does the killing right between your teeth, but you never give it the power to kill you. A metaphor."

Hazel is thrown off when Gus asks her to an impromptu movie then proceeds to possibly smoke a cigarette right in front of her. He sees things differently though. To him, he is not a smoker, rather someone who has taken control of his own destiny. Perhaps he's trying to teach her something.

This Is the Truth

Hazel Grace Lancaster: "I believe we have a choice in this world about how to tell sad stories. On the one hand, you can sugar coat it. Nothing is too messed up that it can't be fixed by a Pater Gabriel song. I like that version as much as the next girl does. It's just not the truth. This is the truth, doctor's appointments, reality shows and, worst of all, support groups."

Hazel narrates her story. As she explains, it's no fairy tale but it is the truth.
