Gretchen Rubin (of The Happiness Project" fame) recently wrote of her favourite passages from children's books. I have to admit to being extremely fond of children's books and have a couple of favourite quotes to offer (from A.A.Milne):
One is when Christopher Robin is talking to Pooh and it goes: "What would I do?" I said to Pooh, "If it wasn't for you," and Pooh said: "True, it isn't much fun for One, but Two can stick together," says Pooh, says he. "That's how it is," says Pooh.
Well, that is how it is, isn't it?
I also love the beginning part of the "Winnie the Pooh" story that begins:" Once upon a time, a very long time ago now, about last Friday, Winnie-the-Pooh lived in a forest all by himself under the name of Sanders" .
And for an extra giggle, there is a sketch of Winnie-the-Pooh, sitting on a log outside a tree, with a sign above him that reads: "Mr Sanders"!
I choose to comment on social issues and write creatively on a variety of subjects - for a variety of audiences.
