Monday smiles – Words of wisdom

One can always rely on Winnie-the-Pooh for wise words. This week I have been at a conference, and I thought you would enjoy this lovely quote that was cited in a presentation by Anne-Lise Kjaer. I’ll be posting a conference report next week. In the meantime, here’s Pooh…

“What does Crustimoney Proseedcake mean?” said Pooh. “For I am a Bear of Very Little Brain, and long words Bother me.”

“It means the Thing to Do.”

“As long as it means that, I don’t mind,” said Pooh humbly.

A.A. Milne.
