Peter Pan quotes






1 – Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting.

2 – All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again.

3 – There are many different kinds of bravery. There’s the bravery of thinking of others before oneself. Now, your father has never brandished a sword nor fired a pistol, thank heavens. But he has made many sacrifices for his family, and put away many dreams.

4 – Even though you want to try to, never grow up.

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

6 – The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it.

7- All the world is made of faith, trust, and pixie dust. 

8 – 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.

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

10 – 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.


Peter Pan quotes






11 – Absence makes the heart grow fonder…or forgetful.

12 – 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.

13 – It may have been quixotic, but it was magnificent.

14 – Dreams do come true, if only we wish hard enough. You can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it.

15 – Peter had seen many tragedies, but he had forgotten them all.

16 – “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 shortish 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 blow open by the breathing of the little stars, and Peter dropped in.


17- All children, except one, grow up.

18 – Of all the delectable islands the Neverland is the snuggest and most compact, not large and sprawly, you know, with tedious distances between one adventure and another, but nicely crammed.

When you play at it day by day with the chairs and tablecloth, it is not in the least alarming, but in the two minutes before you go to sleep it becomes very nearly real. That is why there are night-lights.

19 – Do you know…why swallows build in the eaves of houses? It is to listen to the stories.

20 – 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.


Peter Pan quotes






21 – It is not in doing what you like, but in liking what you do that is the secret of happiness.

22 – No matter how hard we try to be mature, we will always be a kid when we all get hurt and cry

23 – Sometimes, though not often, he had dreams, and they were more painful than the dreams of other boys. For hours he could not be separated from these dreams, though he wailed piteously in them. They had to do, I think, with the riddle of his existence.

24 – I’ll hold you in my heart, until I can hold you in my arms.

25 – 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…

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

28 – 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.

29 – There is a saying in the Neverland that,every time you breathe, a grown-up dies.

30 – A safe but sometimes chilly way of recalling the past is to force open a crammed drawer. If you are searching for anything in particular you don’t find it, but something falls out at the back that is often more interesting.

Peter Pan quotes





31 – Good form without knowing it is the best form of all.

32 – Never is an awfully long time.

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

34 – 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..

35 – The difference between him and the other boys at such a time was that they knew it was make-believe, while to him 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.

36 – 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.

37- Mr. Darling had a passion for being exactly like his neighbors.

38 – 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.

39 – 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.

40 – 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.


Peter Pan quotes





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

42 – They were going round and round the island, but they did not meet because all were going at the same rate.

43 -I don’t want to go to school and learn solemn things.

44 – 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 wood they had met their dead father and had a game with him.

45 – 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 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, feeling 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 raising.”

They put their hands over their eyes to shut out the sight. They thought they would soon be no more.

As they sat, 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 borne 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.

46 – Take care, lest an adventure is now offered to you, which, if accepted, will plunge you in deepest woe.

47- I say, Wendy…always if you see me forgetting you, just keep on saying ‘I’m Wendy,’ and then I’ll remember.

48 – But where do you live mostly now?”

With the lost boys.”

Who are they?”

They are the children who fall out of their perambulators when the nurse is looking the other way. If they are not claimed in seven days they are sent far away to the Neverland to defray expanses. I’m captain.”

What fun it must be!”

Yes,” said cunning Peter, “but we are rather lonely. You see we have no female companionship.”

Are none of the others girls?”

Oh no; girls, you know, are much too clever to fall out of their prams.

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

50 – To die will be an awfully big adventure.



Much love,
