Quote by John Green
As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep; Slowly, and then all at once.
This quote, popularized in John Green's novel "The Fault in Our Stars," beautifully describes the experience of falling in love. It compares the gradual process of slowly succumbing to the mesmerizing power of a captivating book and the inevitable surrender to the irresistible pull of sleep. It suggests that love can start as a gentle inclination, slowly building as time goes on, until one is overwhelmed by the intensity of their emotions and falls deeply in love "all at once."
