"You like stuff."
Because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don't have to be like, 'Oh yeah that purse is okay' or like, 'Yeah, I like that band's early stuff.' Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can't-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, 'You like stuff', which is just not a good insult at all, like 'You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness'. -- John Green

In 1936 F. Scott Fitzgerald was convalescing in a hotel in Asheville, North Carolina, when he gave his nurse a list of 22 books he thought essential. (Here in the nurse’s hand.) He had moved into a hotel that April after transferring Zelda to nearby Highland Hospital. Esquire had just published “The Crack Up' where he said that “my life had been a drawing on resources that I did not possess, that I had been mortgaging myself physically and spiritually up to the hilt.”
