Peter Pan says...

'I'll teach you how to jump on the wind's back and then away we go. Wendy, when you are sleeping in your silly bed you might be flying about with me, saying funny things to the stars.'

- Peter Pan (Peter Pan; or, The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up by J.M. Barrie, 1928, featured in The Norton's Anthology of Children's Literature, edited by Julia Reidhead, 2005)

Note: The play debuted in 1904, and Barrie rewrote and revised the story for the next two decades, until a definitive text was published in 1928.
