NOTE: Often, if not always, misattributed to A.A. Milne. In all my research, I did not once find this specific discussion in A.A. Milne’s writings. It is based on Milne’s characters, but the discussion is actually between the author (Benjamin Hoff), Owl, Piglet, and Pooh. This is a classic example of quotes we see on the internet that automatically assume the author is one person, when in fact it is another. This takes away credit from the actual author. I encourage you to read the specific section this is from in the above linked pdf. (Full disclosure: I am 99% certain this is from Benjamin Hoff. If you find it in Milne’s writings, please provide me the exact location you found it).
