Wisdom from Pooh


In 2011 I have adopted a new mentor – even if he will never know it. Some say he is only a fictional character, therefore he couldn’t possibly know about the “real” world. Some say he is simple and naive, so his words have no weight. Some people might even argue that he is for children, so adults should adopt an attitude of indifference. I say these people have lazy imaginations.

Anyway, here is a quote from my mentor: Winnie the Pooh

Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known.
Pooh’s Little Instruction Book, inspired by A. A. Milne

    I do love this.

    I have had a bit of a relationship with Pooh over the years as well via Benjamin Hoff’s books The Tao of Pooh and also The Te of Piglet. Recommended!
