"let your boat of life be light, packed with only
what you need - a homely home and simple pleasures, someone to love and someone to love you,
enough to eat and enough to wear
and a little more than enough to drink:
for thirst is a dangerous thing"

some things never date..

Winnie the Pooh - written nearly 90 years ago - still gives me that "warm, being safe and little feeling".  The beautiful illustrations in the copy I had, so long ago, are still imprinted in my mind. Perfect for a Wednesday....

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That's why we call it the present." 

“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.” 

“What I like doing best is Nothing."

"How do you do Nothing," asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.

"Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, 'What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?' and you say, 'Oh, Nothing,' and then you go and do it.

It means just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."

"Oh!" said Pooh.” 

“Wherever they go, and whatever happens to them on the way, in that enchanted place on the top of the forest, a little boy and his Bear will always be playing.” 

I must remember to look for an old copy in Cafda Bookshop when I am next there.
