Moral 1) live your life to the fullest
Moral 2) it’s better to be a giver and not a taker

A very interesting character in the novel The Fault In Our Stars by John Green is Augustus Waters. In the novel, Augustus is a teenager (seventeen years old) who lives in Indiana. Throughout the novel, Augustus teaches the reader different morals.
