eeyore's thistley patch

I had thought about Eeyore yesterday........

Eeyore, a very gloomy, sawdust-stuffed, blue-gray donkey. He who spells his name "eoR". He who, despite this, is a very intelligent animal, although he keeps most of his knowledge to himself. That's why he is very quiet most of the time and a bit depressed.

Eeyore, who lives at the 100 Acre Wood Southeast, in his 'Gloomy Place'. His favourite food is thistles. Eeyore, who loves being remembered on his birthday and hates being bounced.Eeyore, whose biggest problem is that his tail keeps coming off (he has lost it many times). His other concern is that his house keeps falling down (he has to rebuild it again, and again, and again.....).

Nevertheless, he seems always appreciative of the efforts of his friends (Pooh and Piglet) to cheer him up....

Here are some of the famous (and cutest) lines from Pooh (and Eeyore), all of them are my favorites:

How sweet to be a cloud

Floating in the blue!

Every little cloud

Always sings aloud.

How sweet to be a cloud

Floating in the Blue!

It makes him very proud

To be a little cloud.

“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

“If you live to be 100, I hope I live to be 100 minus 1 day, so I never have to live without you.”

“A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference.”

“Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.”

“When late morning rolls around and you're feeling a bit out of sorts, don't worry; you're probably just a little eleven o'clockish.”

“People who don't Think probably don't have Brains; rather, they have grey fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake.”

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon”

"They're funny things, Accidents. You never have them till you're having them."

"The nicest thing about the rain is that it always stops. Eventually."

I was feeling a little bit Eeyor-ish yesterday......
