It’s Winnie the Pooh Day! Inspiring quotes from the gang at Hundred Acre Wood


“The sun still shines, even when it’s hiding.”

Today is officially Winnie the Pooh Day – a day honouring author A.A. Milne’s birthday that celebrates the wonderful tales of friendship and adventure his creation brought to generations of children.

But it’s more than just kids who can learn from Christopher Robin and his loveable woodland crew. The adventures of Pooh Bear, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl and so on contain life lessons for everyone.

With this in mind, we’ve picked out some of our favourite Winnie the Pooh quotes from across all the books, series, films and songs that feature the gang at Hundred Acre Wood.

Whether you’re looking for your next Insta caption or some words of inspiration for the wall of a kid’s room, parents and kids alike can take something from these sweet messages about self-belief, friendship, hope, love and kindness.
