Barrie returned to England in 1825 and was consulted by the Admiralty on the naval establishments and defences of the Canadas.

Famous quotes containing the word life:

    What is a novel? I say: an invented story. At the same time a story which, though invented has the power to ring true. True to what? True to life as the reader knows life to be or, it may be, feels life to be. And I mean the adult, the grown-up reader. Such a reader has outgrown fairy tales, and we do not want the fantastic and the impossible. So I say to you that a novel must stand up to the adult tests of reality.
    Elizabeth Bowen (1899–1973)

    Yet they that know all things but know
    That all this life can give us is
    A child’s laughter, a woman’s kiss.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
