The greatest Winnie The Pooh quotes to inspire adults as well as kids

AA Milne’s Winnie The Pooh is by far one of the most successful children’s books to date. But, despite the stories being aimed at little minds, there are plenty of quotes for all ages to take valuable life advice from!

Love, life, friendship, patience – Pooh and the gang have covered it all. So here are some of the best snippets of advice straight from 100 Aker Wood...

‘You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.’

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

‘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.’

‘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 little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.’

‘When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.’

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

‘Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.’

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

‘You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.’

‘How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.’

‘It’s always useful to know where a friend-and-relation is, whether you want him or whether you don’t.’

‘Love is taking a few steps backward maybe even more…to give way to the happiness of the person you love.’

‘Before beginning a Hunt, it is wise to ask someone what you are looking for before you begin looking for it.’

‘A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.’

‘Sometimes the smallest things take the most room in your heart.’

Piglet: ‘How do you spell love?’

Pooh: ‘You don’t spell it, you feel it.’

‘Always watch where you are going. Otherwise, you may step on a piece of the forest that was left out by mistake.’

‘When late morning rolls around and you're feeling a bit out of sorts, don't worry; you're probably just a little eleven o'clockish.’

‘Life is a journey to be experienced, not a problem to be solved.’
