Bothering

Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?

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

“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 today?” said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. “It’s the same thing,” he said.

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.

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and
lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you,
you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

Don’t underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along,
listening to all the things you can’t hear,
and not bothering.

“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 bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.

  1. Thank you for the quotes positifs..

    I like this one in particular.::: “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.”

    Very nice DAY Jonie 🙂

  2. This made my day special bringing back precious memories, Can’t think of the exact word I want to use for the feeling it gives me. Kind of like what Pooh says: “”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”
    This is a great post you have here! THANK YOU!
