Winnie the Pooh on love

Winnie the Pooh and his sweet pals had a lot going for them: acceptance of sad friends, bouncy friends, honey-obsessed friends… and above all, they loved. And Christopher Robin loved them all. Bow down to your elder, Toy Story! Here's how Pooh and crew defined love:

Piglet: "How do you spell love?"
Pooh: "You don’t spell it, you feel it."

"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."

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

"We will be friends until forever, just you wait and see."

"Some people care too much. I think it's called love."

"'I wonder what Piglet is doing,' thought Pooh.
'I wish I were there to be doing it, too.'"

"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you."

"'We’ll be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh?' asked Piglet. 'Even longer,' Pooh answered."

"If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever."

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

Winnie the Pooh on making it work

There's nothing like a little shot of realism with your syrupy love. Making a relationship work through the challenging times is how we stay together. Pooh knows this more than anyone. For a bear with very little brains, he's pretty damned wise:

"'I don’t feel very much like Pooh today,' said Pooh.
"'There there,' said Piglet. 'I'll bring you tea and honey until you do.'"

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

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

"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 the smallest things take the most room in your heart."

"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."

Winnie the Pooh on hope

Through it all, Pooh bear is the most optimistic dude in the forest. He knows it'll all be okay if we just stick with it. Let's all hope we can relate to these adorable Winnie the Pooh quotes on hope:

"Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would I’d never leave."

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

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

"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."

"Forever isn’t long at all, Christopher, as long as I’m with you."

"And by and by Christopher Robin came to an end of things, and he was silent, and he sat there, looking out over the world, just wishing it wouldn’t stop."

  1. I need to go look it up, but I'm fairly certain the "If I live to be 100" one has been "debunked".

    *edit* I was wrong. It IS from Winnie the Pooh. It's not from A.A Milne though, which is who a lot of people credit.

  2. I love Winnie-the-Pooh and all his wonderful quotes! <3

    Also, "How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard." made it into the first section twice. Although it *IS* a good quote 😉
