Draw wisdom from author’s inspirational 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.

1. On clearing your mind of all thoughts:

Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.

2. On the value of dreams:
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.

3. On the benefits of not micromanaging everything:
One of the advantages of being disorganised is that one is always having surprising discoveries.

4. On the beauty within the arts:
But it isn’t easy, said Pooh. Because poetry and hums aren’t things which you get, they’re things which get you. And all you can do is to go where they can find you.
