“I dislike the phrase “Internet friend,” because it implies that people you know online aren’t really your friends, that somehow the friendship is less real or meaningful to you because it happens through Skype or text messages. The measure of a friendship is not its physicality but its significance. Good friendships, online or off, urge us toward empathy; they give us comfort and also pull us out of the prisons of our selves.”

- John Green, TSWGO

It’s not because you don’t cry that you don’t suffer. It’s not because you don’t have scares that makes life worthwhile. It’s not because you don’t give up that you are strong. It’s not because you have never said that you want your end that you’ve never thought about it.
