Winnie the Pooh on Genealogy #2

As I have mentioned before, it never ceases to surprise me how much Winnie the Pooh knows about life, genealogy included.

I searched and found the following quotes and they just seemed to be very insightful. I hope you find them so as well.

“Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head, behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming down-stairs, but sometimes he feels that there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it.”

— Winnie the Pooh

“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.

— Winnie the Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner

“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit. “No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.”

— Winnie the Pooh
