Winnie the Pooh day


If you've had my 2020 content calendar, you will have seen one of the first celebratory days is Winnie-the-pooh-day. 

You may wonder why this day is relevant for a social media prompt... other than that many of us grew up reading A.A. Milne's books? 

The simple bear and his friends shared many pieces of wisdom, which are still relevant today.

Here are a few quotes from A.A. Milne by Winnie the Pooh and co that could be relevant to you, and you could share on your social channels if you think they might be interesting content. 

Feel free to copy and paste these and use them for your online content. 

“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.”
– Winnie-the-Pooh

"Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there someday.
—Winnie the Pooh

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

“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.”

“So perhaps the best thing to do is to stop writing Introductions and get on with the book.”

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

Piglet: "Supposing a tree fell down, when we were underneath it?"
Pooh: "Supposing it didn’t."

"It never hurts to keep looking for sunshine."
– Eeyore

"Some people care too much. I think it’s called love."
—Winnie the Pooh

"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."
—Winnie the Pooh

"You’re braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."– Christopher Robin

"Could be worse. Not sure how, but it could be."
– Eeyore

"Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart."
—Winnie the Pooh

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


A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.
– Eeyore

"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."
—Winnie the Pooh

"The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually."
— Eeyore

"Any day spent with you is my favourite day. So, today is my new favourite day."
—Winnie the Pooh
