I was having one of those lacklustre Covid days when a Winnie the Pooh quote popped into my head - “Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.” That was me. Just going along doing nothing and not bothering. It made me smile and think about other Winnie the Poohisms, some profound, some heart warming, some amusing. Following is a sampling for your enjoyment.
“A hug is always the right size.”
“Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
“A little consideration, a little thought for others makes all the difference.”
“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”
“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?”
“Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So today is my new favorite day.”
“You can't help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn't spell it right; but spelling isn't everything. There are days when spelling
Tuesday simply doesn't count.”
“I’m not lost for I know where I am. However, where I am may be lost.”
“You can’t stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”
“How do you spell 'love'?" - Piglet
"You don't spell it...you feel it." - Pooh”
The things that make me different are “the things that make me Me.”
“Oh, Tigger, where are your manners?” “I don’t know, but they are probably having more fun than I am.”
”When you do the things you can do, you will find a way.”
“Some have brains and some haven’t…and there it is.”
