The 30 Best Peter Pan Quotes

Michael Brandon

I read Peter Pan as a Child, and loved it.

Then I read it as a teenager, and loved it.

I just now read the book as a full blown adult, and guess what? It’s still great.

Despite being a “children’s book”, these quotes touch on some pretty adult topics such as love, life, and growing older…

I hope you enjoy these quotes as much as I enjoyed putting them together.
