Ponder on these Winne-the-Pooh quotes

Author A.A. Milne created some of the most thoughtful and profound characters when he penned his Winne-the-Pooh novels and many of the quotes that were born from it have life lessons we can all learn from.

Perhaps we adults need to revisit the realms of children’s literature, TV and film once in a while because there is a surprising amount of wisdom to be gleaned from them.

Here are five things to ponder on today:

1. On knowing by simply being
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.

2. On individuality
The things that make me different are the things that make me.

3. On not overthinking
Sometimes I sit and think, and sometimes I just sit…

4. On unselfishness
A little consideration, a little thought for others, makes all the difference.

5. On the wealth in your life
How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.
