p.52 - "This moment will just be another story someday."[edit]

This quote is very similar to a lyric from the Puerto Rican band Puya's 1999 album Fundamental. The final line in the Song "Montate" is: "Trata de disfrutar el momento - lo que viene despues es solo un cuento mas" which translates to "Try to enjoy the moment - what comes after is just another story". The album came out 1 month before the book was published, so I don't think it was copied, just a coincidence. Possibly means it was derived from a third source. Sublium

The "Once on yellow paper..." poem[edit]

This poem was not written by Stephen Chbosky and therefore should not be attributed to him in Wikiquote.


  • I don't want to start thinking again. Not like I have this last week. I can't think again. Not ever again.
  • Girls are weird, and I don't mean that offensively. I just can't put it any other way.
  • The people are being nicer in the hallways. Not to me necessarily, just in a general way.
  • Something really is wrong with me. And I don't know what it is.
  • It's better not to know things sometimes.
  • I wanted to laugh. Or maybe get mad. Or maybe shrug at how strange everyone was, especially me.
  • It was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind that just takes time.
