I love Pooh-Bear.  I didn’t always.  He wasn’t a huge part of my childhood, although I know I read the stories – or had them read to me – and had seen the Disney movie.  He was there, and I liked him just fine.  But I grew to love him as an adult, reading his stories to my own children and watching The Adventures of Winnie the Pooh over and over on VHS.  There is a great deal of wisdom in that little bear, something I am not sure kids fully appreciate until they are grown.

Some of my favorite Pooh quotes, none of which, it turns out, are particularly profound:

“Think, think, think.” — sometimes, I just have to remind myself to do this. 😉

“When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.” — sometimes I think things that make perfect sense to me…until I say them out loud. 🙂

“It’s more fun to talk to people who don’t use long, difficult words, but rather short, easy words like, ‘What about lunch?'” — quickest way to win my friendship?  besides being funny, liking to eat.

“Tut, tut.  It looks like rain”  –which I always think when it looks like it might rain.  go figure.

“You never can tell with bees.” –not sure why I like it, but it’s true. You never can tell with bees.

And my favorite, “If you want to make a song more hummy, add a few tiddley poms.”
