Let’s Celebrate: Winnie The Pooh Day – January 18th

Posted by on Jan 18, 2016 in Blog, Double Cousins |



Winnie The Pooh has been a part of my life since I can remember. For one thing we had a set of THE books by A.A. Milne. I don’t really have memories of reading them as a child, but I’m sure they were read to me. I have definite memories of reading them to my little sister, Vonda. I also have memories of Grandpa Onstott reading them to her.

When my oldest nieces and nephew were small they watched Winnie The Pooh over and over. And over. It became a part of our daily conversation. When I told my husband I was going to find some of my favorite quotes from Winnie The Pooh, he asked, “Tut, tut. Looks like rain?” Apparently I say that a lot.

So, here are some of my favorite quotes. How about your? I would love to have you comment on this post and let me know which are your favorites! Happy Winnie The Pooh Day!


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

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

“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.” 

“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart, it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude.” 

“Think, think, think.” 


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

”What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.

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

Winnie the Pooh: Christopher Robin! I think it would help with this deception if you would just kind of open your umbrella and say, “Tut-tut, it looks like rain.”

Christopher Robin: Tut-tut, it looks like rain. Tut-tut, it looks like rain.

“Oh yes, I’m rumbly in my tumbly. Time for something sweet.”
