Winnie the Pooh Day is coming up this January 18th, and to commemorate everyone’s favourite silly old bear we’ve put together a list of his and the Hundred Acre Wood gang’s wisest, funniest, most heartwarming quotes. A whole 94 years on from A. A. Milne’s original creation, this day not only marks the author’s birthday but also proves that this beloved bear will be spreading joy and inspiring kids (and adults!) for many more years to come. Winnie was not wrong when he told us himself - “keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.”
