Pooh said he was a Bear of very little brain~

I call myself “a poet of little merit”~

Pooh was wrong~

But I was right!

Realizations can be bliss. What have you come to realize?

Day 24 ~ 200 Words

A.A. Milne

 Used this in one of my Quotes of the Day and it was quite popular, so thought I would expand on it a little ~

  “When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into  the open and has other people looking at it.” ~ A. A. Milne

The above quote is known in some parts as a “Poohism” and is part and parcel of the wisdom and philosophy of Winnie the Pooh, from the series of books created by A.A. Milne for his son.

Children are very wise. They understand complicated statements by their favourite characters. They know that Pooh is smart despite the fact that he is always saying that he is a Bear of Very Little Brain. And they know that sometimes something they are thinking inside their brains becomes something very different when it sees the light of day.

 When I first read this statement I did not necessarily think of it as something positive. Sometimes when we reveal what is inside of us to other people they think we are rather odd or do not understand us. But I got another reading on the statement from someone (Brigitte) with a different perspective. She saw this as a positive statement – that sometimes when we show our fears to others, they help disperse the fear or bad feeling and it no longer becomes troublesome. I like the second perspective.

In the mood for an A. A. Milne  Poohism? Have you ever felt like this:

“When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and you Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.”
