For anyone who needs to read some stories for a little encouragement, you will find a Winnie the Pooh book to help. Life is full of struggles, big and small.  Pooh always has a succinct and compassionate way with words to get you through. We've compiled a long list of Winnie the Pooh quotes that reflect his outlook on friendship, values, morals, and all that is important in his world.
