How to cite a quote from a website in MLA format?

QUESTION
How to cite a quote from a website in MLA format?
There is a quote I want to use in my paper that I found on a website.
The website page is http://www.quotationspage.com/quote/36428.html, as you can tell from the
URL the website hosts multiple quotes from different sources.

The quote I want to use is by James M. Barrie, and the only other relevant information I can find is
the copyright date of the website, and who maintains the site. ( which is (c) 2010 Michael Moncur)

But I have no idea how to cite this in MLA format.
Please help!
