Anyone recognize it? Yes? No? Well (and I am ashamed to admit it) I didn't. Therefore, I put myself to google-ing it and it was long until I found it. The quote belongs to the masterful mind of the author John Green. The book you are searching for because of that quote now is named Looking for Alaska, and as you can guess, I already put it on my to-read list.
Enough of my rambling. Going to read some now. Bye bye
p.s. Thank you friend!
