Looking for Alaska

"I thought about the slow process of becoming bone and then fossil and then coal that will, in millions of years, be mined by humans of the future, and how they would heat their homes with her, and then she would be smoke billowing out of a smokestack, coating the atmosphere. I still think that, sometimes, think that maybe 'the afterlife' is just something we made up to ease the pain of loss, to make our time in the labyrinth bearable. Maybe she was just matter, and matter gets recycled."

  1. Yuri. I absolutely love this book. It's one of my favorites! I cried like a baby. I loved Alaska and I loved Pudge, they were both great characters that have stuck with me to this very day. John Green is a genius when it comes to writing books. I'm excited because I finally recognize a book you've read. :) Love this quote! I'm actually getting a quote from this book on my left thigh next month. Although it's not this one.

    Lovely xoxo,
