Congratulations, John Green.

You are now officially on my list of literary crushes.

From John Green's Printz acceptance speech:

But then sometimes, it is your fault—not because you are evil, but because you are careless and dumb and generally human. I found myself wondering about that particular variety of suffering. So many other questions spun off from that one, but the initial question—of whether there can be hope in a world where people cannot help but be careless, a world where there is no chance of true justice—inspired Alaska.

(Oddly enough, this bit helped me in my recent defense of Little Miss Sunshine.  So thanks.)
