Did you grow up adoring Winnie the Pooh as much as I did? That lovable little bear in the beautiful and magical Hundred Acre Wood? I get nostalgic just hearing the theme song. But reading Winnie the Pooh quotes as an adult made me realize that he has a depth I never noticed before. He is quite the little philosopher. And he shares some of the most beautifully hopeful and simplistic perspectives on life that I’ve ever heard.
