Winnie The Pooh Day is an annual celebration of the author’s birthday, January 18. A.A. Milne created this delightful honey bear and wrote him some fantastic one-liners. Let’s look at some of the best Winnie The Pooh quotes!

This lovable yellow bear has charmed children and adults alike for decades.

He’s funny and wise, kind but brutally honest, always hungry and yet too perpetually lazy to do much about it. Thanks to this adorable mix of strengths and weakness, Winnie The Pooh has some of the loveliest, thought-provoking and genuinely hilarious quotes.

What can we learn from Winnie The Pooh’s best quote?

Appreciate the ones you love

  1. “Love is taking a few steps backward maybe even more to give way to the happiness of the person you love.”
  2. “Some people care too much. I think it’s called love.”
  3. “A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside.”
  4. “It’s so much more friendly with two.”

A little sarcasm never hurt anyone

  1. “People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
  2. “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”
  3. “He was telling an interesting anecdote full of exciting words like ‘encyclopaedia’ and ‘rhododendron.'”



It’s the little things in life that make it sweeter

  1. “Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.”
  2. “When you see someone putting on his Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an adventure is going to happen.”
  3. “Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”

Embrace yourself and the journey

  1. “I’m short and fat and proud of that!”
  2. “My spelling is wobbly. It’s good spelling but it wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places.”
  3. “Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

Sometimes it’s not that deep

  1. “I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I have been.”
  2. “When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.”
  3. “Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That’s the problem.”
