I'm such a book nerd

My favorite quote from literature?
From John Green's novel Looking For Alaska
Text reads: Just like that. From a hundred miles an hour to asleep in a nanosecond. I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.
For some reason, this quote just makes me smile. Like ridiculously out of the world smile. And if I had to tattoo one line and one line only on my body, it would be this one. All because it makes me happy.
