10 Winnie-the-Pooh Quotes that Will Make You Instantly Feel Better About Life

10 Winnie-the-Pooh Quotes that Will Make You Instantly Feel Better About Life
Sometimes life can be tough. Many people go through the day-to-day looking for some source of relief and sadly neglect the joy and wisdom that can come from children’s books. Winnie-the-Pooh is much more than the Disney film you remember watching when you were younger. The Disney adaptation of Winnie-the-Pooh is endearing in its own right (Pooh’s stoutness exercises will make even the hardest heart giggle in delight.) However, there is real beauty and inspiration in A.A. Milne’s written stories centered around Christopher Robin and his friends. Here are our favorite excerpts.
"Piglet noticed that even though he had a very small heart , it could hold a rather large amount of gratitude." — A.A. Milne

How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
― A.A. Milne

It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?’
― A.A. Milne

”What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.
― A.A. Milne

I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.
― A.A. Milne

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.
― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

”It’s snowing still,” said Eeyore gloomily.
“So it is.”
“And freezing.”
“Is it?”
“Yes,” said Eeyore. “However,” he said, brightening up a little, “we haven’t had an earthquake lately.”
― A.A. Milne

It’s not much of a tail, but I’m sort of attached to it.
― A.A. Milne

Later on, when they had all said “Good-bye” and “Thank-you” to Christopher Robin, Pooh and Piglet walked home thoughtfully together in the golden evening, and for a long time they were silent.
“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh,” said Piglet at last, “what’s the first thing you say to yourself?”
“What’s for breakfast?” said Pooh. “What do you say, Piglet?”
“I say, I wonder what’s going to happen exciting to-day?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.
― A.A. Milne

Promise you won’t forget me, ever. Not even when I’m a hundred.
― A.A. Milne


“What do you like doing best in the world, Pooh?”
“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best-” and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called. And then he thought that being with Christopher Robin was a very good thing to do, and having Piglet near was a very friendly thing to have; and so, when he had thought it all out, he said, “What I like best in the whole world is Me and Piglet going to see You, and You saying ‘What about a little something?’ and Me saying, ‘Well, I shouldn’t mind a little something, should you, Piglet,’ and it being a hummy sort of day outside, and birds singing.”
“I like that too,” said Christopher Robin, “but what I like doing best is Nothing.”
― A.A. Milne
