Born today was J.M. Barrie*
Created Tinker Bell, the fairy,
The faithful friend of Peter Pan
Who wouldn't grow into a man.
*In his own words:
1. "If growing up means it would be beneath my dignity to climb a tree, I'll never grow up, never grow up, never grow up! Not me!"
2. "Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight: always try to be a little kinder than is necessary."
3. "Nothing is really work unless you would rather be doing something else."
4. "Time is chasing after all of us."
5. "All of this has happened before, and it will all happen again."
6. "I am not young enough to know everything."
