I made myself a cup of tea and sat down behind my computer to write a new post. Normally I am packed with new ideas to write about. But not today. Today I was feeling as inspired as the writers of every Police Academy movie since the third one. I thought I could continue with the 50 books you should read before you die list. But I didn`t feel like getting into anything too serious. As I was excluding title after a title, I noticed Winnie-the-Pooh being on the list. And I thought to myself, why not. Winnie was awesome.
I don`t recall reading Winnie-the-Pooh myself. Although, I remember some of the adventures of Winnie and his friends. My mom probably read it to me when I was younger. And I`m glad she did. Hearing stories of Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood was just magical. Winni-the-Pooh is not just a simple children`s book, it teaches kids about some important values like charity, consideration and humanity.
As it is a children`s book I don`t really suggest you to read it on your own, but If you have younger siblings or kids of your own, then you should read it to them. If I ever have children, they are going to hear the hell out of this book.
I found a webpage where some of the best quotes of Winnie-the-Pooh are listed. I`ll share a few with you just to assure you how awesome Winnie really is.
"A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference."
"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."
"Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."
"Some people care too much, I think it's called love."
