Sé un sol para los demás… / Be a sun for all other…

“Aquellos que iluminan la vida de los demás, no pueden evitar iluminar su propia vida.”

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”

Sir James Matthew Barrie, comúnmente conocido como J. M. Barrie (9 de mayo de 1860 - 19 de junio de 1937), fue un novelista y dramaturgo escocés. Es especialmente famoso por haber creado el personaje de Peter Pan, basado en sus amigos, los niños Llewellyn-Davies.
Segundo de diez hermanos, Barrie nació en Kirriemuir, Angus y fue educado en The Glasgow Academy y la Universidad de Edimburgo. Ejerció de periodista en Nottingham, luego en Londres, y luego pasó a ser novelista y posteriormente autor teatral.

Sir James Matthew Barrie, (9 May 1860 – 19 June 1937) was a Scottish author and dramatist, best remembered today as the creator of Peter Pan. The child of a family of small-town weavers, he was educated in Scotland. He moved to London, where he developed a career as a novelist and playwright. There he met the Llewelyn Davies boys who inspired him in writing about a baby boy who has magical adventures in Kensington Gardens (included in The Little White Bird), then to write Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up, a "fairy play" about this ageless boy and an ordinary girl named Wendy who have adventures in the fantasy setting of Neverland. This play quickly overshadowed his previous work and although he continued to write successfully, it became his best-known work, credited with popularising the name Wendy, which was very uncommon previously.
