Words of Wisdom from Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh

Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in our hearts.

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

“There’s something you must remember.”

“And what might that be Christopher Robin?”

“You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, smarter than you think.”
