Wednesday’s Words #2: Winnie the Pooh


This past Sunday was A.A. Milne’s Birthday, as well as Winnie the Pooh Day, so…*

“So perhaps the best thing to do is to stop writing Introductions and get on with the book.”


“Let’s begin by taking a smallish nap or two.”

Go ahead, I’ll wait here.  It’s the middle of the week, we’re all a little tired, and…

“A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.”

Now don’t you feel better?  I don’t know about you, but 20 minutes of quietly checking my eyelids for holes can make all the difference in my day.  I love naps.  I didn’t appreciate them when I was a kid and wanted to do all.the.things.  I understand now just how great naps are…


“Sometimes the smallest things take the most room in your heart.”

The above quote isn’t really about naps, but this is my blog and I write what I want.  Naps are my friends, and…

“A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.”

Dear nap,

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”

“How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”


The Reading Wench


Piglet: “How do you spell love?”
Pooh: “You don’t spell it, you feel it.”


*Note: some of these quotes may have come from the Disney adaptations and never appeared in the book.  Though I distinctly remember them, my memory is fuzzy, and my copy of the book is in storage.
