Winnie-the-Pooh's Little Book of Wisdom

There's something about The Hundred Acre Wood characters! Although the Winnie-the-Pooh stories (and Disney adaptations in particular) are every bit child-ish, you've got to admire how well A. A. Milne captured the different kinds of people traits in his animals. Quite philosophical. Got myself this little Winnie-the-Pooh wise words book published by Egmont Children's Books Limited and picked off some of the better quotes below:

"Although Eating Honey is a very good thing to do, there is a moment just before you begin to eat it which is better than when you are."

Don't Procrastinate:
"If you're always saying, 'We'll see,' nothing ever happens."

"It's best to know what you are looking for before you look for it."

Keep Busy:
"It's just the day for doing things."

Personal Thoughts:
"When you are a bear of very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you sometimes find that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out in the open and has other people looking at it."

Say it With Flowers:
"How sad it is to be an animal who has never had a bunch of Violets picked for him."

Try a Little Spontaneity:
"Do a Good thing To Do without thinking about it."
