Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
First sentence: "All children, except one, grow up."
Quote #1: "Stars are beautiful, but they may not take an active part in anything, they must just look on for ever. 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."
Quote #2: "To die will be an awfully big adventure."
Quote #3: "If you knew how great is a mother's love," Wendy told them triumphantly, "you would have no fear."
Last sentence: "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."
Surprisingly - I typically love my classics - I didn't like this book. There are a handful of quotes I found great, but the story didn't read smoothly or encourage much daydreaming. I grew up watching Hook with my brothers and love that story. I hadn't seen most of the Disney movies - save Pocahontas and Jungle Book - until my late teens, so I was never aware of the Peter Pan story. I didn't really care for it. Just my opinion.
