"When she sat across from the philosopher the hour glass flipped in her mind and the sand started to fall." Where is this quote from?

I found this on Philosophy Bro's twitter, so it's in that general area I think... can anyone identify where this is from?

I'm not sure, but could it be from Sophie's World?

It's been a while since I read the book, but I immediately thought of Sophie's World as well.

Thirding that it feels like Sophie's World.
