Peter Pan

The quotes that Sosia uses as his signature have reminded me of one of my favourite quotes ever. This is what J.M. Barrie says about childhood:
"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 the 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 this subject, but henceforth Wendy knew that she must grow up. You always know after you are two. Two is the beginning of the end."

Thanks for sharing M. Jose! Great quote!

Two is the beginning of the end.. how sad..

I really enjoyed Barrie's work. Did you see the movie too with
Johnny Depp and Kate Winslet (Finding Neverland)?

sí es triste. Es decir que nosotros mismos sólo estamos esperando morir. Pero también después de leer se quiere disfrutar más la vida mientras estamos viviendo

I did love the film. I've seen it at the cinema and also with my students.

Yes, it's worry for me, because I have never liked the word die.
