Today is Winnie The Pooh’s Birthday and to Celebrate Here Are 10 of My Favorite Quotes


Today, January 18th, is National Winnie the Pooh Day!

This date is the birthday to author A. A. Milne, born in 1882.  He would later go on to create the beloved Winnie the Pooh stories that included his son, Christopher Robin.

Pooh himself was based on a black bear named Winnie, who lived at the London Zoo during World War I. The real Christopher Robin liked the visit Winnie and named his own teddy after her and a swan named Pooh.

In honor of A.A. Milne, Christopher Robin, Winnie the Pooh, and my favorite character Eeyore, here are 10 memorable quotes from Pooh and his friends.
