Auggie Wren: If it happens it happens. If it doesn't it doesn't. You understand what I'm sayin'? You never know what's gonna happen next. And the moment you think you do, that's the moment you don't know a goddamn thing. This is what we call a paradox. Are ya following me?
Jimmy Rose: Yeah, I follow ya Auggie. Um, when you don't know nuthin' it's like paradise. I know what that is. That's after you're dead, and you go up to heaven and you sit with the angels.
Paul Benjamin: If you're gonna die, what's more important, and good book or a good smoke? So he smoked his book.
