A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh was published on the 14th of October 1926. Spilling Ink is paying tribute to the timeless children’s classic with a quirky Pooh-Bear quote each week this month.
The first quote is a personal favourite:
“One of the advantages of being disorganized is that one is always having surprising discoveries.”
Some call it “disorganisation.” Pooh Bear and I call it serendipity. I had one such surprise yesterday when I uncovered a cache of pristine notebooks I’d laid aside. I had no idea I was so paper-rich!
Nearly everyone in the world identifies with one of the characters in Winnie-the-Pooh. For me, it’s always been Pooh Bear. How about you? Which character do you have an affinity with?
