The boy who would not grow up...

After spending a sweltering day out in the sun, I think the best part was taking these photos.

"Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning"

One word springs to mind : Magic.

"To love would be an awfully big adventure"

"Never say goodbye. Because goodbye means going away, and going away means forgetting"

"When the first baby laughed for the first time, it's laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies" 

"You know that place between sleeping and awake, that place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I'll always think of you"

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

"All the world is made of faith, and trust, and pixie dust"

"Those who bring sunshine to others, cannot keep it from themselves"

All quotes are by J. M. Barrie - The creator of Peter Pan. 


  1. Beautiful quotes and pics - oh that we'd all allow ourselves feel and believe that kind of magic :-)

  2. I remember finding this "hidden" in K Gardens - fantastic

  3. Oh i LOVE Peter Pan! What a wonderful statue... perfect with those quotes.
    The Disney Movie version just misses most of the point of JM Barrie's writing.
    It's a truly Magical story.
