"Pooh," said Rabbit kindly, "you haven't any brain."
"I know," said Pooh humbly.
"People who don't think probably don't have their brains;
have grey fluff that's blown into "their heads by mistake."
"To the uneducated, an A is just three sticks."
Sometimes, when you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you
Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which
seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it
gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.
"One can't complain. I have my friends.
Someone spoke to me only yesterday."
"You can't help respecting anybody who can
spell Tuesday, even if he doesn't spell it right."
"And we must all bring provisions."
"Things to eat."
"Oh!" said Pooh happily, "I thought you said Provisions.
I'll go and tell them." And he stumped off.
"After all, what are birthdays?
Here today and gone tomorrow."
"I don't hold with all the washing,"
"This modern Behind-the-ears nonsense."
Then he thought another long time, and said;"And the only

honey is so as I can eat it."

Eeyore's back snapped suddenly, then we could all laugh. Ha Ha!
Amusing in q quiet way," said Eeyore, "but not really helpful."

Pooh said, "Let's go and see Kanga and Roo and Tigger," and
Piglet said, "Y-Yes L-Let''s" - because he was still a little
anxious about Tigger, who was a Very Bouncy Animal, with a way
of saying How-do-you-do, which always left your ears full of
sand. --The House At Pooh Corner—
"Rabbit's clever,"said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."
"And he has brain." "Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit has Brain."
There was a long silence.
"I suppose," said Pooh, "that that's why
he never understands anything."
