I feel a lot of my comments and posts start with “I was browsing through TikTok…” I have come to realise I spend too much time on that app. However, I came across a young couple with their children visiting Pooh’s Corner in Hartfield. Ashwood Forest in Hartfield is where the magical “100 Acre Wood’s” is supposed to be. It reminded me that 18th of January 2023, is national Winnie the Pooh day.

Winnie the Pooh is a character created by A. A. Milne, and a childhood favourite for many. As a huge Disney fan, I wanted to mark this day with some of the lovely, positive and inspirational quotes that you would come across when reading a Winnie the Pooh book or watching a Winnie the Pooh movie.

  • “Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?’ ‘Supposing it didn’t,’ said Pooh after careful thought. Piglet was comforted by this.” - The House at Pooh Corner by A.A Milne.
  • “There is no hurry. We shall get there some day.” - The House at Pooh Corner by A.A Milne.
  • “The things that make me different are the things that make me, me.” - Piglet, Welcome to Pooh Corner (1984).
  • “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.” - Christopher Robin Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin (1997).
  • “A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.” - Eeyore, Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne.
  • “Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. “Pooh?” he whispered. “Yes, Piglet?” “Nothing,” said Piglet, taking Pooh’s hand. “I just wanted to be sure of you.” - The House at Pooh Corner by A.A Milne.
  • “Some people care too much. I think it's called love.” - A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh.
  • “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, Winnie-the-Pooh.

During times like this, I think we always need that little reminder.

    I always loved Roo growing up but since watching the films in my adult years and understanding the quotes more, "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think..." is definitely a quote that sticks with me :)<3

    I'm not a big fan of Disney. Although I have Disney merch and I have been to Walt Disney World and a Disney Cruise Staycation.
