J M Barrie

Because yesterday I had to look up the J M Barrie quote I started to look through some of the other things he said. Here is a small selection.

“She was a large woman who seemed not so much dressed as upholstered”

“You have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by.”

“The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.”

“We never understand how little we need in this world until we know the loss of it”

“Fame is rot; daughters are the thing”

As the mother of two wonderful daughters I particularly liked the last one.
