"'There will come a time,' I said ' when all of us are dead. All of us. There will come a time when there are no human beings renaming to remember that anyone ever existed... And if the inevitability of human oblivion worries you, I encourage you to ignore it. God knows that's what everyone els does' (13)" Hazel does not fear death. She knows that everyone was born to die. That after life there is only oblivion. She accepts that fact, she does not fear oblivion. Only being forgotten.
