Too few of us think back to what we used to read as children and take a moment to reflect on the stories that allowed us to dream. We have adult stuff to do now, after all.

We hardly think that most of the tales we read as kids are filled with life lessons that have probably contributed to shaping the adults we are today. Winnie the Pooh is actually quite the philosopher and many of his and his friends’ sayings have a deep meaning and remain relevant, no matter how old you are.

Take some time to appreciate some of Pooh’s lessons you might have missed as a child.

Here are 19 Winnie the Pooh quotes on friendship, love and optimism.
