A quotation is a handy thing to have about,
saving one the trouble of thinking for oneself.
The things that make me different are the things that make me.
If ever there is tomorrow when we’re not together…
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem,
and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart…
I’ll always be with you.
You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you.
You have to go to them sometimes.
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.
“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit.
“No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t.
But there was going to be when I began it.
It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”
Pay attention to where you are going
because without meaning you might get nowhere.
A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh
