Today has been one of those days when I needed me some Winnie the Poohisms. After looking through A.A. Milne quotes, I selected several that gave me soothing smiles. A quote from Milne further explains this blog: “[A] quotation is a handy thing to have about, saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself, always a laborious business."
“A hug is always the right size.”
“A little consideration, a little thought for others makes all the difference.”
“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today," said Pooh.
"There there," said Piglet. "I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.”
"Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude."
"Did you ever stop to think and forget to start again?"
“How do you spell 'love'?" - Piglet
"You don't spell it...you feel it." - Pooh”
"When you do the things you can do, you will find a way."
"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."
"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like, "What about lunch?"
"People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day."
"One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries."
"Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem."
"Just because an animal is large, it doesn't mean he doesn't want kindness; however big Tigger seems to be, remember that he wants as much kindness as Roo."
"To the uneducated an A is just three sticks."
"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything."
“Some have brains and some haven’t…and there it is.”
