“Don’t grow up, it’s a trap.” Peter Pan says.
Something I remembered clearly while watching my favourite childhood show “Peter Pan” and it has been on my mind for a great deal of time. I wanted to make use of this quote for so long now and yay, I am able to use it in art.
The saying implies that, once you grow up, you’ll be thrown into a turmoil of emotional and monetary debt, unfair responsibility, a dull work-life.
I love how the creator of Peter Pan is basically revealing the harshness of ‘reality’, discretely telling the audience (the kids watching) of what to expect when you grow up.
I remembered clearly when I was a kid I wanted so badly to grow up fast, my friends did too. But growing up now and remembering this quote, I realise it was a warning – it’s been telling me “you wish you did not”. Because growing up leads to misery. And there’s no way back to childhood again where I can be innocent, enjoy freedom, bliss in the most simplest things.
Ok well as a whole I really just love this movie.
“It’S SO FLUFFY I’M GONNA DIE!” – Agnes, Despicable Me.
Yes yes Agnes, we all love fluffy things.
ONTO THE NEXT ONE which I really love:
“I wish I could freeze this moment right here, right now and live in it forever” – Peeta, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Not to be mushy but there’s so much love here I could die. *fangirls even after 3 years since the release*
These are the few quotes I want to be focusing on, ranging on the 1st one that I will be tapping on (the Peter Pan quote). This post might still be edited to update more quotes and inspo.
EDIT: Like stated above, here’s 1 more quote I would want to share.
This one’s from the “Fight Club”.
“Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.” – Chuck, Fight Club
