Wisdom From A Bear

poohstix1There was a writer who decided to create a story for his young son, Christopher.  He decided to create a story about Christopher’s stuffed animals.  His son’s favorite was named Edward Bear.  You know him better as Winnie-the-Pooh.

Pooh and friends lived in The Hundred Acre Wood, and from that place of fun and imagination came much wisdom.  Those lessons were, most likely, meant for his young son – yet, they ended up teaching us all a thing or two.

Here are some of the best lessons from A.A. Milne’s wonderful stories…

  • “Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”
  • “Sometimes,’ said Pooh, ‘the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
  • “If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”
  • “Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”
  • “If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”
  • “Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart, it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude.”
  • “A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.”
  • “Oh, Tigger, where are your manners? “I don’t know, but I’ll bet they are having more fun that I am.”
  • “Weeds are flowers too, once you get to know them.”
  • “How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

And my favorite…


“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”
