Peter Pan Quotes (149+)

Peter Pan is the titular protagonist of Disney’s 1953 animated feature film of the same name.

Peter travels from the enchanted isle of NeverLand all the way to London just to hear Wendy Darling spin tales about him and his adventures.

While his ego may seem inflated at times, even his arch-nemesis Captain Hook, knows that Peter’s no ordinary boy.

He can fly without wings and match Hook’s cutlass with nothing more than a dagger.

He is also the undisputed leader of the Lost Boys and allows no breaks in ranks.

Time makes little difference to him; when you never grow up, life is nothing but fun, whimsy, and adventure, according to the Disney fandom. 

Peter Pan is incredibly adventurous and daring. His favorite activities include battling pirates, engaging in friendly wars with the Indians, and listening to Wendy’s stories of his adventures.

Being a young boy, Peter can be rather impractical and conceited at times, but when it comes to rescue his friends, he is far more mature than any adult can be. 

He is respected and loved by nearly every inhabitant of Never Land with the exception of Captain Hook (and his crew) who despises Peter for cutting off his hand and feeding it to the crocodile during their first battle. 

Ever since, Peter and Hook have been at each other’s throats constantly, battling in the hope that one would finally “walk the plank.” One of the many things Peter discards is adulthood.

This drove him to create a team of kids who also desire to stay young who he deems the Lost Boys.

One can say Peter stands as a father figure for the group as well. Peter’s most trusted companion is Tinker Bell. 

Even though they have a close best friend relationship, it is obvious Tink has strong feelings for Peter.

Whether or not he is actually aware is currently unknown, although, in the first film, when Tink was close to death, Peter stated: “Don’t you understand, Tink, you mean more to me than anything in the world!

Peter Pan in the Disney movie is one of the few adaptations of the J.M. Barrie plays a male actor.

In most versions, he is played by a female actress to resemble the pre-pubescent vocal styles and build of a young boy.

15 Peter Pan Quotes

1.  “When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”

2.  “Second star to the right and straight on ’til morning. ”

3.  “To live will be an awfully big adventure.”

4.  “Wendy,” Peter Pan continued in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, “Wendy, one girl is more used than twenty boys.”

5.  “Never is an awfully long time.”

6.  “All children, except one, grow up.”

7.  “Stars are beautiful, but they may not take part in anything, they must just look on forever.”

8.  “Build a house?” exclaimed John.

“For Wendy,” said Curly.

“For Wendy?” John said, aghast. “Why, she is only a girl!”

“That,” explained Curly, “is why we are her servants.”

9.  “Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time.”

10.   “You need not be sorry for her. She was one of the kind that likes to grow up. In the end she grew up of her own free will a day quicker than the other girls.”

11.   “There could not have been a lovelier sight; but there was none to see it except a little boy who was staring in at the window. He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know; but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be forever barred.”

12.   “If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.”

13.   “Oh, the cleverness of me!”

14.   “All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain like this for ever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”

15. “I suppose it’s like the ticking crocodile, isn’t it? Time is chasing after all of us.”

20 Peter Pan Quotes

1.   “Pan, who and what art thou?” he cried huskily.

“I’m young, I’m joy,” Peter answered at a venture, “I’m a little bird that has broken out of the egg.”

2. “I taught you to fight and to fly. What more could there be?”

3.  “If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colours suspended in the darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape, and the colours become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire.”

4.  “Just always be waiting for me.”

5.  “Stars are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just look on forever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long ago that no star now knows what it was. So the older ones have become glassy-eyed and seldom speak (winking is the star language), but the little ones still wonder.”

6.  “Can anything harm us, mother, after the night-lights are lit?”

Nothing, precious,” she said; “they are the eyes a mother leaves behind her to guard her children.”

7.   “She asked where he lived.

Second to the right,’ said Peter, ‘and then straight on till morning.”

8.  “There is a saying in Neverland that, every time you breathe, a grown-up dies.”

9.  “Would you like an adventure now, or would like to have your tea first?”

10.   “She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner.”

11.   “It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.”

12.   “All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.”

13.   “Tink was not all bad: or, rather, she was all bad just now, but, on the other hand, sometimes she was all good. Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change.”

14.   “On these magic shores children at play are forever bleaching their coracles. We too have been there; we can still hear the sound of the surf, though we shall land no more.”

15.   “For long the two enemies looked at one another, Hook shuddering slightly, and Peter with a strange smile upon his face.

“So, Pan,” said Hook at last, “this is all your doing.”

“Ay, James Hook,” came the stern answer, “it is all I’m doing.”

“Proud and insolent youth,” said Hook, “prepare to meet thy doom.”

“Dark and sinister man,” Peter answered, “have at thee.”

16.   “Wendy, Wendy, when you are sleeping in your silly bed you might be flying about with me saying funny things to the stars.”

17.   “Absence makes the heart grow fonder… or forgetful.”

18.   “Forget them, Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown up things again.

Never is an awfully long time.”

19.   “Do you know,” Peter asked, “why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.”

20.   “She’s awfully fond of Wendy,’ he said to himself. He was angry with her now for not seeing why she could not have Wendy. The reason was so simple: ‘I’m fond of her too. We can’t both have her, lady.”

25 Peter Pan Quotes

1.   “Forever is a very long time Peter”

2. “Mrs. Darling first heard of Peter when she was tidying up her children’s minds. It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother doing this and you would find it very interesting to watch. It’s quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her knees, I expect, lingering humorously over some of your contents, wondering where on Earth you picked this thing up, making discoveries sweet and not so sweet, pressing this to her cheek, as if it were a nice kitten, and hurriedly stowing that out of sight. When you wake in the morning, the naughtiness and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out the prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on.”

3.  “Fairies don’t live long, but they are so little that a short time seems a good while to them”

4.  “Feeling that Peter was on his way back, Neverland had again woken into life. We ought to use the pluperfect and say wakened, but woke is better and was always used by Peter.”

5.   “Two is the beginning of the end.”

6.  “Peter was not with them for the moment, and they felt rather lonely up there by themselves. He could go so much faster than them that he would suddenly shoot out of sight, to have some adventure in which they had no share.

He would come down laughing over something fearfully funny he had been saying to a star, but he had already forgotten what it was, or he would come up with mermaid scales still sticking to him, and yet not be able to to say for certain what had been happening.

It was really rather irritating to children who had never seen a mermaid.”

7.  “And so when Mrs. Darling went back to the night-nursery to see if her husband was asleep, all the beds were occupied. The children waited for her cry of joy, but it did not come. She saw them, but she did not believe they were there. You see, she saw them in their beds so often in her dreams that she thought this was just the dream hanging around her still.”

8.  “Every child is affected thus the first time he is treated unfairly . All he thinks he has a right to when he comes to you to be yours is fairness. After you have been unfair to him he will love you again, but will never afterwards be the same boy. No one ever gets over the first unfairness; no one except Peter. He often met it, but he always forgot it. I suppose that was the real difference between him and all the rest.”

9.   “They took it for granted that if they went he would go also, but really they scarcely cared. Thus children are ever so ready, when novelty knocks, to desert their dearest ones.”

10.   “He was so full of wrath against grown-ups, who as usual, were spoiling everything, that as soon as he got inside his tree he breathed intentionally quick short breaths at the rate of about five to a second. He did this because there is a saying in the Neverland, that everytime you breathe, a grown-up dies; and Peter was killing them off vindictively as fast as possible.”

11.   “When she expressed a doubtful hope that Tinker Bell would be glad to see her, he said, ‘Who is Tinker Bell?’

‘O Peter,’ she said, shocked; but even when she explained he could not remember.

‘There are such a lot of them,’ he said. ‘I expect she is no more.’

I expect he was right, for fairies don’t live long, but they are so little that a short time seems a good while to them.”

12.   “no matter how hard we try to be mature, we will always be a kid when we all get hurt and cry”

13.   “Even though you want to try to, never grow up”

14.   “I don’t know whether you have ever seen a map of a person’s mind. Doctors sometimes draw maps of other parts of you, and your own map can become intensely interesting, but catch them trying to draw a map of a child’s mind, which is not only confused, but keeps going round all the time. There are zigzag lines on it, just like your temperature on a card, and these are probably roads on the island, for the Neverland is always more or less an island, with astonishing splashes of colour here and there, and coral reefs and rakish-looking craft in the offing, and savages and lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and caves through which a river runs, and princes with sex elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one very small old lady with a hooked nose. It would be an easy map if that were all, but there is also first day at school, religion, fathers, the round pond, needle-work, murders, hangings, verbs that take the dative, chocolate-pudding day, getting into braces, say ninety-nine threepence for pulling out your tooth yourself, and so on, and either these are part of the island or they are another map showing through, and it is all rather confusing, especially as nothing will stand still.

Of course the Neverlands vary a good deal. John’s, for instance, had a lagoon with flamingos flying over it at which John was shooting, while Michael, who was very small, had a flamingo with lagoons flying over it. John lived in a boat turned upside down on the sands, Michael in a wigwam, Wendy in a house of leaves deftly sewn together. John had no friends, Michael had friends at night, Wendy had a pet wolf forsaken by its parents…”

15.   “And if he forgets them so quickly,” Wendy argued, “how can we expect that he will go on remembering us?”

16.   “However, as we are here we may as well stay and look on. That is all we are, lookers-on. Nobody really wants us. So let us watch and say jaggy things, in the hope that some of them will hurt.”

17.   “Mrs. Darling loved to have everything just so, and Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbours; so, of course, they had a nurse. As they were poor, owing to the amount of milk the children drank, this nurse was a prim Newfoundland dog, called Nana, who had belonged to no one in particular until the Darlings engaged her. She had always thought children important, however, and the Darlings had become acquainted with her in Kensington Gardens, where she spent most of her spare time peeping into perambulators, and was much hated by careless nursemaids, whom she followed to their homes and complained of to their mistresses. She proved to be quite a treasure of a nurse.”

18.   “Will they reach the nursery in time? If so, how delightful for them, and we shall all breathe a sigh of relief, but there will be no story. On the other hand, if they are not in time, I solemnly promise that it will all come right in the end.”

19.    “It may have been quixotic, but it was magnificent.”

20.   “Children have the strangest adventures without being troubled by them. For instance, they may remember to mention, a week after the event happened, that when they were in the woods they had met their dead father and had a game with him.”

21.    “That fiend!” Mr. Darling would cry, and Nana’s bark was the echo of it, but Mrs. Darling never upbraided Peter; there was something in the right-hand corner of her mouth that wanted her not to call Peter names.”

22.   “Of course the Neverlands vary a good deal. John’s, for instance, had a lagoon with flamingos flying over it at which John was shooting, while Michael, who was very small, had a flamingo with lagoons flying over it. John lived in a boat turned upside down on the sands, Michael in a wigwam, Wendy in a house of leaves deftly sewn together. John had no friends, Michael had friends at night, Wendy had a pet wolf forsaken by its parents…”

23.   “Two small figures were beating against the rock; the girl had fainted and lay on the boy’s arm. With a last effort Peter pulled her up the rock and then lay down beside her. Even as he also fainted he saw that the water was rising, He knew that they would soon be drowned, but he could do no more.

As they lay side by side a mermaid caught Wendy by the feet, and began pulling her softly into the water. Peter felt her slip from him, woke with a start, and was just in time to draw her back. But he had to tell her the truth.

“We are on the rock, Wendy,” he said, “but it is growing smaller. Soon the water will be over it.”

She did not understand even now.

“We must go,” she said, almost brightly.

“Yes,” he answered faintly.

“Shall we swim or fly, Peter?”

He had to tell her.

“Do you think you could swim or fly as far as the island, Wendy, without my help?”

She had to admit she was too tired.

He moaned.

“What is it?” she asked, anxious about him at once.

“I can’t help you, Wendy. Hook wounded me. I can neither fly nor swim.”

“Do you mean we shall both be downed?”

“Look how the water is rising.”

They put their hands over their eyes to shut out the sight. They thought they would soon be no more. As they sat thus something brushed against Peter as light as a kiss, and stayed there, as if to say timidly, “Can I be of any us?” It was the tail of a kite, which Michael had made some days before. It had torn itself out of his hand and floated away.

“Michael’s kite,” Peter said without interest, but the next moment he had seized the tail, and was pulling the kite towards him.

“It lifted Michael off the ground,” he cried; “why should it not carry you?”

“Both of us!”

“It can’t leave two; Michael and Curly tried.”

“Let us draw lots,” Wendy said bravely.

“And you a lady; never.” Already he had tied the tail round her. She clung to him; she refused to go without him; but with a “Good-bye, Wendy.” he pushed her from the rock; and in a few minutes she was born out of his sight. Peter was alone on the lagoon.

The rock was very small now; soon it would be submerged. Pale rays of light tiptoed across the waters; and by and by there was to be heard a sound at once the most musical and the most melancholy in the world: the mermaids calling to the moon.”

24.   “astonishing splashes of colour”

25. “It was not really Saturday night, at least it may have been, for they had long lost count of the days; but always if they wanted to do anything special they said this was Saturday night, and then they did it.”

30 Peter Pan Quotes

1.  “He looked at her uncomfortably; blinking, you know, like one not sure whether he was awake or asleep.”

2.  “He was a little boy, and she was grown up. She huddled by the fire not daring to move, helpless and guilty, a big woman.”

3.  “Next moment he was standing erect on the rock again, with that smile on his face and a drum beating within him. It was saying, “To die will be an awfully big adventure.”

4.  “You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”

6.  “Proud and insolent youth,” said Hook, “prepare to meet thy doom.” “Dark and sinister man,” Peter answered, “have at thee.”

7.  “As you look at Wendy you may see her hair becoming white, and her figure little again, for all this happened long ago. Jane is now a common grown-up, with a daughter called Margaret; and every spring-cleaning time, except when he forgets,Peter comes for Margaret and takes her to Neverland, where she tells him stories about himself, to which he listens eagerly. When Margaret grows up she will have a daughter, who is to be Peter’s mother in turn; and so it will go on, so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless.”

8. “when there’s a smile in your heart, there’s no better time to start”

9. “No, no,” Mr. Darling always said, “I am responsible for it all. I, George Darling, did it. MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA.”

12.   “It was dreadful the way all the three were looking at him, just as if they did not admire him.”

13.   “What’s your name?’ he asked.

‘Wendy Moira Angela Darling,’ she replied with some satisfaction. ‘What is your name?’

‘Peter Pan.’

She was already sure that he must be Peter, but it did seem a comparatively short name.

‘Is that all?’

‘Yes,’ he said rather sharply. He felt for the first time that it was a short name.

‘I’m so sorry,’ said Wendy Moira Angela.

‘It doesn’t matter,’ Peter gulped.

She asked where he lived.

‘Second to the right,’ said Peter, ‘and then straight on till morning.’

‘What a funny address!’

Peter had a sinking feeling. For the first time he felt that perhaps it was a funny address.

“A moment after the fairy’s entrance the window was blown open by the breathing of the little stars, and Peter dropped in.”

14.   “Peter invented, with Wendy’s help, a new game that fascinated him enormously, until he suddenly had no more interest in it, which, as you have been told, was what always happened with his games. It consisted in pretending not to have adventures…”

17.   “All children, except one, grow up”

21.   “Of course they lived at 14 [their house number on their street], and until Wendy came her mother was the chief one. She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner.

The way Mr. Darling won her was this: the many gentlemen who had been boys when she was a girl discovered simultaneously that they loved her, and they all ran to her house to propose to her except Mr. Darling, who took a cab and nipped in first, and so he got her. He got all of her, except the innermost box and the kiss. He never knew about the box, and in time he gave up trying for the kiss. Wendy thought Napoleon could have got it, but I can picture him trying, and then going off in a passion, slamming the door.”

26.   “They knew in what they called their hearts that one can get on quite well without a mother, and that it is only the mothers who think you can’t.”

27.   “asleep to rummage in their minds”

28.   “To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze.”

29.   “They were going round and round the island, but they did not meet because all were going at the same rate.”

30.   “Mr. Darling used to boast to Wendy that her mother not only loved him but respected him. He was one of those deep ones who know about stocks and shares. Of course no one really knows, but he quite seemed to know, and he often said stocks were up and shares were down in a way that would have made any woman respect him.”

11.            “None of them knew. Perhaps it was best not to know. Their ignorance gave them one more glad hour; and as it was to be their last hour on the island, let us rejoice that there were sixty glad minutes in it. They sang and danced in their night-gowns. Such a deliciously creepy song it was, in which they pretended to be frightened at their own shadows, little witting that so soon shadows would close in upon them, from whom they would shrink in real fear. So uproariously gay was the dance, and how they buffeted each other on the bed and out of it! It was a pillow fight rather than a dance, and when it was finished, the pillows insisted on one bout more, like partners who know that they may never meet again. The stories they told, before it was time for Wendy’s good-night story! Even Slightly tried to tell a story that night, but the beginning was so fearfully dull that it appalled not only the others but himself, and he said happily:”

12.            “This meal happened to be a make-believe tea, and they sat ’round the board guzzling in their greed; and really, what with their chatter and recriminations, the noise, as Wendy said, was positively deafening.”

13.            “If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colours suspended in the darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape, and the colours become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire. But just before they go on fire you see the lagoon. This is the nearest you ever get to it on the mainland, just one heavenly moment; if there could be two moments you might see the surf and hear the mermaids singing.”

14.            “All remember about my mother,” Nibs told them, “is that she often said to my father, ‘Oh, how I wish I had a cheque-book of my own!’ I don’t know what a cheque-book is, but I should just love to give my mother one.”

15.            “Of course Neverland had been make-believe in those days; but it was real now, and there were no night-lights, and it was getting darker every moment, and where was Nana?”

16.            “The boys on the island vary, of course, in numbers, according as they get killed and so on; and when they seem to be growing up, which is against the rules, Peter thins them out; but at this time there were six of them, counting the twins as two. Let us pretend to lie here among the sugar-cane and watch them as they steal by in single file, each with his hand on his dagger.”

17.            “Mrs. Darling stretched out her arms to him, but he repulsed her. “Keep back, lady, no one is going to catch me and make me a man.”

18.            “The pirates, listening avidly at the mouths of the trees, heard the question put by every boy, and alas, they also heard Peter’s answer.”

20.            “Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbours.”

21.            “Peter measures you for your tree as carefully as for a suit of clothes: the only difference being that the clothes are made to fit you, while you have to be made to fit the tree.”

22.            “Forget them Wendy. Forget them all. Come with me where you’ll never, never have to worry about grown up things again.”

23.            “Whenever a child says “I don’t believe in fairies” there’s a little fairy somewhere that falls right down dead”

24.            “The way Mr. Darling won her was this: the many gentlemen who had been boys when she was a girl discovered simultaneously that they loved her, and they all ran to her house to propose to her except Mr. Darling, who took a cab and nipped in first, and so he got her. He got all of her, except the innermost box and the kiss. He never knew about the box, and in time he gave up trying for the kiss. Wendy thought Napoleon could have got it, but I can picture him trying, and then going off in a passion, slamming the door.”

25.            “One cannot at least withhold a reluctant admiration for the wit that had conceived so bold a scheme, and the fell genius with which it was carried out.”

26.            “But of course he cared very much; and he was so full of wrath against grown-ups, who, as usual, were spoiling everything, that as soon as he got inside his tree he breathed intentionally quick short breaths at the rate of about five to a second. He did this because there is a saying in the Neverland that every time you breathe, a grown-up dies; and Peter was killing them vindictively as fast as possible.”

27.            “I have no recollection of writing the play of Peter Pan, now being published for the first time so long after he made his bow upon the stage.”

28.            “Sir James Matthew Barrie, 1st Baronet OM (9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937), more commonly known as J. M. Barrie, was a Scottish novelist and dramatist. He is best remembered for creating Peter Pan, the boy who refused to grow up, whom he based on his friends, the Llewelyn Davies boys. He is also credited with popularising the name “Wendy”, which was very uncommon before he gave it to the heroine of Peter Pan. He was made a baronet in 1913; his baronetcy was not inherited. He was made a member of the Order of Merit in 1922. Source: Wikipedia”

29.            “Doctors sometimes draw maps of other parts of you, and your own map can become intensely interesting, but catch them trying to draw a map of a child’s mind, which is not only confused, but keeps going round all the time.”

30.            “His eyes were the blue of the forget-me-not, and of a profound melancholy, save when he was plunging his hook into you, at which time two red spots appeared in them and lit them up horribly. In manner, something of the great seigneur still clung to him, so that he even ripped you up with an air, and I have been told he was a raconteur of repute. He was never more sinister than when he was most polite, which is probably the truest test of breeding…”

31.            “One girl is worth more than twenty boys.”

32.            “Smee”, he said huskily, “that crocodile would have had me before this, but by a lucky chance it swallowed a clock that goes tick tick inside it, and so before it can reach me I can hear the tick and bolt.” He laughed, but in a hollow way. “Some day”, Smee said, “the clock will run down, and then he’ll get you.”

33.            “At first Mrs. Darling did not know, but after thinking back into her childhood she just remembered a Peter Pan who was said to live with the fairies. There were odd stories about him, as that when children died he went part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened.”

34.            “There never was a simpler, happier family until the coming of Peter Pan.”

35.            “Stars are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just look on forever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long ago that no star now knows what it was.”

1. “There is almost nothing

that has such a keen sense of fun as a fallen

leaf.”

2. “He did not alarm her, for she thought she had seen him before in the faces of many women who have no children. Perhaps he is to be found in the faces of some mothers also.”

3.   “There were odd stories about him; as when children died he went part of the way with them, so that they should not be frightened. She”

4.  “Peter spoke indignantly. “You don’t think I would kill him while he was sleeping! I would wake him first, and then kill him. That’s the way I always do.” “I say! Do you kill many?” “Tons!”

5. “She saw them, but did not believe they were there. You see, she saw them so often in their beds in her dreams that she thought this was just the dream hanging around her still.”

6. “When you wake in the morning, the naughtinesses and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind; and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out your prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on.”

7.   “Bringing up the rear, the place of greatest danger, comes Tiger Lily, proudly erect, a princess in her own right. She is the most beautiful of dusky Dianas and the belle of the Piccaninnies, coquettish, cold, and amorous by turns; there is not a brave who would not have the wayward thing to wife, but she staves off the altar with a hatchet.”

8. “We can fly!”

9.   “I can’t come,’ she said apologetically, ‘I have forgotten how to fly.’

‘I’ll soon teach you again.’

‘O Peter, don’t waste the fairy dust on me.”

10.       “It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother doing this, and you would find it very interesting to watch her. It is quite like tidying up drawers. You would see her on her knees, I expect, lingering humorously over some of your contents, wondering where on earth you had picked this thing up, making discoveries sweet and not so sweet, pressing this to her cheek as if it were as nice as a kitten, and hurriedly stowing that out of sight. When you wake in the morning, the naughtiness and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind; and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out your prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on.”

11.       “Come with me where dreams are born and time is never planned.”

12.       “He was so much the humblest one that Wendy was especially gentle with him.”

13.       “But of course he cared very much; and he was so full of wrath against grown-ups, who, as usual, were spoiling everything, that as soon as he got inside his tree he breathed intentionally quick short breaths at the rate of about five to a second. He did this because there is a saying in the Neverland that, every time you breathe, a grown-up dies; and Peter was killing them off vindictively as fast as possible. Then”

14.       “They will find the cake and they will gobble it up, because, having no mother, they don’t know how dangerous ’tis to eat rich damp cake.”

15.       “So with occasional tiffs, but on the whole rollicking, they drew near the Neverland; for after many moons they did reach it, and, what is more, they had been going pretty straight all the time, not perhaps so much owing to the guidance of Peter or Tink as because the island was out looking for them. It is only thus that anyone may sight those magic shores.”

16.       “She did not yet know that Tink hated her with the fierce hatred of a very woman.”

17.       “she is called Tinker Bell because she mends the pots and kettles.”

18.       “Her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner”

19.       “He swore this terrible oath: “Hook or me this time.”

20.       “Certainly they did not pretend to be sleepy, they were sleepy; and that was a danger, for the moment they popped off, down they fell. The awful thing was that Peter found this funny. “There he goes again!” he would cry gleefully as Michael suddenly dropped like a stone.”

21.       “All children, except one, grow up”

22.       “He was one of those deep ones who know about stocks and shares.

Of course no one really knows, but he quite seemed to know, and he often said stocks were up and shares were down in a way that would have made any woman respect him.”

23.       “John and Michael raced, Michael getting a start.”

24.       “Two is the beginning of the end”

25.       “Of course the Neverlands vary a good deal”

26.       “There are zigzag lines on it…and these are probably roads in the island, for Neverland is always more or less an island, with astonishing splashes of

colour here and there, and coral reefs and rakish-looking craft in an offering, and savages and lonely lairs, and gnomes who are mostly tailors, and caves through which a river runs, and princes with six elder brothers, and a hut fast going to decay, and one very small old lady with a hooked nose.”

27.       “.. he was standing erect on the rock again, with that smile on his face and a drum beating within him. It was saying ‘to die will be an awfully big adventure.”

28.       “Wendy came first, then John, then Michael.”

29.       “No one ever gets over the first unfairness; no one except Peter. He often met it, but he always forgot it. I suppose that was the real difference between him and all the rest.”

30.       “been dreaming.”

31.       “You just think lovely wonderful thoughts,” Peter explained, “and they lift you up in the air.”

32.       “Would you like an adventure now,” he said casually to John, “or would you like to have your tea first?”

33.       “How clever I am,’ he crowed rapturously, ‘oh, the cleverness of me!”

34.       “Thus Wendy and John and Michael found the window open for them after all, which of course was more than they deserved. They alighted on the floor, quite unashamed of themselves; and the youngest one had already forgotten his home. ‘John,’ he said, looking around him doubtfully, ‘I think I have been here before.’ ‘Of course you have, you silly. There is your old bed.’ ‘So it is,’ Michael said, but not with much conviction. ‘I say,’ cried John, ‘the kennel!’ and he dashed across to look into it. ‘Perhaps Nana is inside it,’ Wendy said. But John whistled. ‘Hullo,’ he said, ‘there’s a man inside it.’ ‘It’s father!’ exclaimed Wendy.”

35.       “…there was a commotion in the firmament, and the smallest of all the stars in the Milky Way screamed out: “Now, Peter!”

36.       “It was because I heard father and mother,’ he explained in a low voice, ‘talking about what I was to be when I became a man.’ He was extraordinarily agitated now. ‘I don’t want ever to be a man,’ he said with passion. ‘I want always to be a little boy and to have fun.”

37.       “No. You see children know such a lot now, they soon don’t believe in fairies, and every time a child says, ‘I don’t believe in fairies,’ there is a fairy somewhere that falls down dead.”

38.       “Would you like an adventure now, or would you like to have your tea first?”

39.       “Come with me, where dreams are born, and time is never planned.”

40. “He always waited till the last moment, and you felt it was his cleverness that interested him and not the saving of human life.”

45 Peter Pan Quotes

1.   “The way Mr. Darling won her was this: the many gentlemen who had been boys when she was a girl discovered simultaneously that they loved her, and they all ran to her house to propose to her except Mr. Darling, who took a cab and nipped in first, and so he got her.”

2. “Second to the right, and straight on till morning.”

3. “…and as she was crossing to the day-nursery he added thoughtlessly, ‘And shut that window. I feel a draught.’

‘O George, never ask me to do that. The window must always be left open for them, always, always.”

4. “He peeped in again to see why the music had stopped, and now he saw that Mrs. Darling had laid her head on the box, and that two tears were sitting on her eyes.

‘She wants me to unbar the window,’ thought Peter, ‘but I won’t, not I!’

He peeped again, and the tears were still there, or another two had taken their place.

‘She’s awfully fond of Wendy,’ he said to himself. He was angry with her now for not seeing why she could not have Wendy.

The reason was so simple: ‘I’m fond of her too. We can’t both have her, lady.”

5. “Why, what is the matter, father dear?’ ‘Matter!’ he yelled; he really yelled. ‘This tie, it will not tie.”

6.  “The game’s up,” he cried, “those boys have found a mother.”

Affrighted though she was, Wendy swelled with pride.

“O evil day!” cried Starkey.

“What’s a mother?” asked the ignorant Smee.

Wendy was so shocked that she exclaimed. “He doesn’t know!” and always after this she felt that if you could have a pet pirate Smee would be her one.”

7.  “Children have the strangest adventures without being troubled by them.”

8.  “He was top-heavy with conceit.”

9.  “Boy,” she said courteously, “why are you crying?”

10.       “And still Wendy hugged Nana. ‘That’s right,’ he shouted. ‘Coddle her! Nobody coddles me. Oh dear no! I am only the breadwinner, why should I be coddled, why, why, why!”

11.       “In the midst of them, the blackest and largest in that dark setting, reclined James Hook, or as he wrote himself, Jas. Hook, of whom it is said he was the only man that the Sea-Cook feared. He lay at his ease in a rough chariot drawn and propelled by his men, and instead of a right hand he had the iron hook with whichever and anon he encouraged them to increase their pace. As dogs this terrible man treated and addressed them, and as dogs they obeyed him. In person he was cadaverous [dead looking] and blackavised, and his hair was dressed in long curls, which at a little distance looked like black candles, and gave a singularly threatening expression to his handsome countenance. His eyes were of the blue of the forget-me-not, and of a profound melancholy, save when he was plunging his hook into you, at which time two red spots appeared in them and lit them up horribly. In manner, something of the grand seigneur still clung to him, so that he even ripped you up with an air, and I have been told that he was a raconteur of repute. He was never more sinister than when he was most polite, which is probably the truest test of breeding; and the elegance of his diction, even when he was swearing, no less than the distinction of his demeanour, showed him one of a different cast from his crew. A man of indomitable courage, it was said that the only thing he shied at was the sight of his own blood, which was thick and of an unusual colour. In dress he somewhat aped the attire associated with the name of Charles II, having heard it said in some earlier period of his career that he bore a strange resemblance to the ill-fated Stuarts; and in his mouth he had a holder of his own contrivance which enabled him to smoke two cigars at once. But undoubtedly the grimmest part of him was his iron claw.”

12.       “Michael should have used it also, but Wendy would have a baby, and he was the littlest, and you know what women are, and the short and long of it is that he was hung up in a basket.”

13.       “Nana entered,”

14.       “Not the pain of this but its unfairness was what dazed Peter. It made him quite helpless. He could only stare, horrified. Every child is affected thus the first time he is treated unfairly. All he thinks he has a right to when he comes to you to be yours is fairness. After you have been unfair to him he will love you again, but will never afterwards be quite the same boy. No one ever gets over the first unfairness; no one except Peter. He often met it, but he always forgot it. I suppose that was the real difference between him and all the rest. ”

15.       “His way was to pursue birds who had food in their mouths suitable for humans and snatch it from them; then the birds would follow and snatch it back; and they would all go chasing each other gaily for miles,”

16.       “Peter was not quite like other boys; but he was afraid at last. A tremor ran through him, like a shudder passing over the sea; but on the sea one shudder followed another till there were hundreds of them, and Peter felt just the one. Next moment he was standing erect on the rock again, with that smile on his face and a drum beating within him. It was saying, ‘To die will be an awfully big adventure.’   TO”

17.       “When you wake in the morning, the naughtinesses and evil passions with which you went to bed have been folded up small and placed at the bottom of your mind; and on the top, beautifully aired, are spread out your prettier thoughts, ready for you to put on. I”

18.       “Second to the right,’ said Peter, ‘and then straight on till morning.’ ‘What”

19.       “To believe is to have wings.”

20.  “Wendy,” he continued, in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, ‘Wendy, one girl is more used than twenty boys.’ Now”

21.       “Wendy,” he continued, in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, “Wendy, one girl is more used than twenty boys.”

Now Wendy was every inch a woman, though there were not very many inches, and she peeped out of the bed-clothes.

“Do you really think so, Peter?”

“Yes, I do.”

22.       “James Hook, thou not wholly unheroic figure, farewell. For we have come to his last moment.”

23.       “altered”

24.       “Don’t you understand? You mean more to me than anything in this entire world.”

25.       “Wendy, one girl is more used than twenty boys.”

26.   “To sit still seemed to him such a comic thing to do.”

27.  “You just think lovely wonderful thoughts,’ Peter explained, ‘and they lift you up in the air.’ He”

28.  “our heroine knew that the mother would always leave the window open for her children to fly back by; so they stayed away for years and had a lovely time.”

29.   “It’s all very well to say you are waiting; so am I waiting.’ ‘Father’s a cowardy custard.’ ‘So are you a cowardy custard.’ ‘I’m not frightened.’ ‘Neither am I frightened.’ ‘Well, then, take it.’ ‘Well, then, you take it.”

30.   “In dress he somewhat aped the attire associated with the name of Charles II, having heard it said in some earlier period of his career that he bore a strange resemblance to the ill-fated Stuarts; and”

31.       “Can anything harm us, mother, after the night-lights are lit?” “Nothing, precious,” she said; “they are the eyes a mother leaves behind her to guard her children.”

32.       “she staves off the altar with a hatchet.”

33.       “ALL CHILDREN, EXCEPT ONE, grow up. They”

34.       “All children, except one, grow up. They soon know that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful, for Mrs. Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, “Oh, why can’t you remain like this forever!” This was all that passed between them on the subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end.”

35.       “There’s a pirate asleep in the pampas just beneath us,’ Peter told him. ‘If you like, we’ll go down and kill him.”

36.       “Peter spoke indignantly. ‘You don’t think I would kill him while he was sleeping! I would wake him first, and then kill him. That’s the way I always do.’ ‘I say! Do you kill many?’ ‘Tons.”

37.       “I cut off a bit of him.’ ‘You!’ ‘Yes, me,’ said Peter sharply. ‘I wasn’t meaning to be disrespectful.’ ‘Oh, all right’ ‘But, I say, what bit?’ ‘His right hand.’ ‘Then he can’t fight now?”

38.       “there was not a pocket between the four of them.”

39.       “she followed Tink to her doom.”

40.       “We ought to use the pluperfect and say wakened, but woke is better and was always used by Peter.”

41.   “Every child is affected thus the first time he is treated unfairly. All he thinks he has a right to when he comes to you to be yours is fairness. After you have been unfair to him he will love you again, but will never afterwards be quite the same boy.”

42.  “Odds bobs, hammer and tongs I’m burning.”

43.       “alarming was his agitation; and with a fine candour he”

44.       “nuts.”

45. “flannels, Peter?” she said, lingering over him. She was always so particular about their flannels. “Yes.” “And you will take your medicine?”

50 Peter Pan Quotes

1.   “necklace George”

2.   “Peter,” she asked, trying to speak firmly, “what are your exact feelings to [about] me?”

“Those of a devoted son, Wendy.”

“I thought so,” she said, and went and sat by herself at the extreme end of the room.

“You are so queer,” he said, frankly puzzled, “and Tiger Lily is just the same. There is something she wants to be to me, but she says it is not my mother.”

“No, indeed, it is not,” Wendy replied with frightful emphasis. Now we know why she was prejudiced against the redskins.

“Then what is it?”

“It isn’t for a lady to tell.”

“Oh, very well,” Peter said, a little nettled. “Perhaps Tinker Bell will tell me.”

“Oh yes, Tinker Bell will tell you,” Wendy retorted scornfully. “She is an abandoned little creature.”

3.  “Every child is affected thus the first time he is treated unfairly”

4.  “perished”

5. “I think I heard you volunteer, Starkey,” said Hook, purring again.

“No, by thunder!” Starkey cried.

“My hook thinks you did,” said Hook, crossing to him. “I wonder if it would not be advisable, Starkey, to humour the hook?”

6. “They were his dogs snapping at him, but, tragic figure though he had become, he scarcely heeded them. Against such fearful evidence it was not their belief in him that he needed, it was his own. He felt his ego slipping from him.”

7. “A more villainous-looking lot never hung in a row on Execution dock.”

8. “Second star to the right and straight on ‘til morning. ”

9.    

“Wendy,” Peter Pan continued in a voice that no woman has ever yet been able to resist, “Wendy, one girl is more used than twenty boys.”

10. “Good form without knowing it is the best form of all.”

11. 

             “None of them knew.

Perhaps it was best not to know. Their ignorance gave them one more glad hour;

and as it was to be their last hour on the island, let us rejoice that there

were sixty glad minutes in it. They sang and danced in their night-gowns. Such a

deliciously creepy song it was, in which they pretended to be frightened at

their own shadows, little witting that so soon shadows would close in upon

them, from whom they would shrink in real fear. So uproariously gay was the

dance, and how they buffeted each other on the bed and out of it! It was a

pillow fight rather than a dance, and when it was finished, the pillows

insisted on one bout more, like partners who know that they may never meet

again. The stories they told, before it was time for Wendy’s good-night story!

Even Slightly tried to tell a story that night, but the beginning was so

fearfully dull that it appalled not only the others but himself, and he said

happily:”

12. 

             “This meal happened

to be a make-believe tea, and they sat ’round the board guzzling in their

greed; and really, what with their chatter and recriminations, the noise, as

Wendy said, “It was positively deafening.”

13. 

              “If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one,

you may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colours suspended in the

darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape,

and the colours become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire.

But just before they go on fire you see the lagoon. This is the nearest you

ever get to it on the mainland, just one heavenly moment; if there could be two

moments you might see the surf and hear the mermaids singing.”

14. 

             “All remember about

my mother,” Nibs told them, “is that she often said to my father, ‘Oh,

how I wish I had a cheque-book of my own!’ I don’t know what a cheque-book is,

but I should just love to give my mother one.”

15. 

             “Of course

Neverland had been make-believe in those days; but it was real now, and there

were no night-lights, and it was getting darker every moment, and where was

Nana?”

16.                      “The boys on the island vary, of course, in

numbers, according as they get killed and so on;

17. “Next moment he was standing erect on the rock again, with that smile on his face and a drum beating within him. It was saying, “To die will be an awfully big adventure.”

18.   “You always know after you are two. Two is the

beginning of the end.”

19.   “The difference between him and the other boys

at such a time was that they knew it was make-believe, while to hime

make-believe and true were exactly the same thing. This sometimes troubled

them, as when they had to make-believe that they had had their dinners.”

20.   “Proud and insolent youth,” said Hook, “prepare to meet thy

doom.” “Dark and sinister man,” Peter answered, “have at thee.”

21.  “As you look at Wendy you may see her hair

becoming white, and her figure little again, for all this happened long ago. Jane

is now a common grown-up, with a daughter called Margaret; and every

spring-cleaning time, except when he forgets,Peter comes for Margaret and takes

her to Neverland, where she tells him stories about himself, to which he

listens eagerly. When Margaret grows up she will have a daughter, who is to be

Peter’s mother in turn; and so it will go on, so long as children are gay and

innocent and heartless.”

22. “when there’s a

smile in your heart, there’s no better time to start”

23.   “No, no,” Mr.

Darling always said, “I am responsible for it all. I, George Darling, did

it. MEA CULPA, MEA CULPA.”

24. “There could not have been a lovelier sight; but there was none to see it except a little boy who was staring in at the window. He had ecstasies innumerable that other children can never know; but he was looking through the window at the one joy from which he must be forever barred.”

25.

    “If you cannot teach me to fly, teach me to sing.”

26.

    “Oh, the cleverness of me!”

27.

    “All children, except one, grow up. They soon know

that they will grow up, and the way Wendy knew was this. One day when she was

two years old she was playing in a garden, and she plucked another flower and

ran with it to her mother. I suppose she must have looked rather delightful,

for Mrs Darling put her hand to her heart and cried, ‘Oh, why can’t you remain

like this forever!’ This was all that passed between them on the subject, but

henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two.

Two is the beginning of the end.”

28. “I suppose it’s like the ticking crocodile, isn’t it? Time is

chasing after all of us.”

29.  “If you shut your eyes and are a lucky one, you

may see at times a shapeless pool of lovely pale colours suspended in the

darkness; then if you squeeze your eyes tighter, the pool begins to take shape,

and the colours become so vivid that with another squeeze they must go on fire.”

30. 

“Just

always be waiting for me.”

31. 

“Stars

are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just

look on forever. It is a punishment put on them for something they did so long

ago that no star now knows what it was. So the older ones have become glassy-eyed

and seldom speak (winking is the star language), but the little ones still

wonder.”

32.   “Can anything harm us, mother, after the

night-lights are lit?”

33. Nothing, precious,” she said;

“they are the eyes a mother leaves behind her to guard her children.”

34.   “She asked where he lived.

35. Second to the right,’ said Peter, ‘and then

straight on till morning.”

36.   “There is a saying in the

Neverland that, every time you breathe, a grown-up dies.”

37. “Of course they lived at 14 [their house number on their street], and until Wendy came her mother was the chief one. She was a lovely lady, with a romantic mind and such a sweet mocking mouth. Her romantic mind was like the tiny boxes, one within the other, that come from the puzzling East, however many you discover there is always one more; and her sweet mocking mouth had one kiss on it that Wendy could never get, though there it was, perfectly conspicuous in the right-hand corner.

The way Mr. Darling won her was this: the many

gentlemen who had been boys when she was a girl discovered simultaneously that

they loved her, and they all ran to her house to propose to her except Mr.

Darling, who took a cab and nipped in first, and so he got her. He got all of

her, except the innermost box and the kiss. He never knew about the box, and in

time he gave up trying for the kiss. Wendy thought Napoleon could have got it,

but I can picture him trying, and then going off in a passion, slamming the

door.”

38.

    “After a time he fell asleep, and some unsteady

fairies had to climb over him on their way home from an orgy.”

39.

    “Most disquieting reflection of all, was it not

bad form to think about good form?”

40.

    “It is the nightly custom of every good mother

after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight

for the next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that

have wandered during the day.”

you see me forgetting you, just keep on saying ‘I’m Wendy,’ and then I’ll

remember.”

42.

    “They knew in what they called their hearts that

one can get on quite well without a mother, and that it is only the mothers who

think you can’t.”

43.

    “asleep to rummage in their minds”

44.     “To reveal who he

really would even at this date set the country in a blaze.”

45..

  “They were going round and round the island, but

they did not meet because all were going at the same rate.”

46.

    “Mr. Darling used to boast to Wendy that her

mother not only loved him but respected him. He was one of those deep ones who

know about stocks and shares. Of course no one really knows, but he quite

seemed to know, and he often said stocks were up and shares were down in a way

that would have made any woman respect him.”

47. “Don’t you understand Tink? You mean more to me than anything in this whole world!”

48. 

“When

ladies used to come to me in dreams, I said, ‘Pretty mother, pretty mother.’

But when at last she really came, I shot her.”

49.  “All you need is Faith, Trust, and a little Pixie Dust”

50.  “Do you want an adventure now, or would you like to have your tea first?”
