Quotes Galore: Eeyore and More

These first few quotes in the post full o’ quotes are from Eeyore, Winnie the Pooh’s eternally pessimistic friend. When I was young, I had Winnie the Pooh wallpaper, and Eeyore was my favourite. Signs of things to come, perhaps…

No brain at all, some of them, only grey fluff that’s blown into their heads by mistake, and they don’t Think.

This is sort of what it feels like when depression has knocked my brain out of commission.

Eeyore: Good morning, Pooh Bear. If it is a good morning. Which I doubt.

Pooh: “Why, what’s the matter?”

Eeyore: “Nothing, Pooh Bear, nothing. We can’t all and some of us don’t. That’s all there is to it.”

Pooh: “Can’t all what?”

Eeyore: “Gaiety. Song-and-dance. Here we go round the mulberry bush.”

You certainly won’t find me dancing ’round the mulberry bush!

I’m not asking anybody,” said Eeyore. “I’m just telling everybody. We can look for the North Pole, or we can play “Here we go gathering Nuts in May” with the end part of an ants’ nest. It’s all the same to me.

Same shit, different pile!

Everybody crowds round so in this Forest. There’s no Space. I never saw a more Spreading lot of animals in my life, and in all the wrong places.

This one pretty accurately sums up my view of my own surroundings. More Space please!

  1. Eeyore’s my favourite too. I saw the writer Frank Cottrell-Boyce (who wrote a film on A. A. Milne) say that Eeyore’s basically a chronic depressive, but everyone else has come up with workarounds for that, which is fairly understanding and sophisticated for children’s fiction from the inter-war era.

  2. Haha! I love Eyeore too. He is so beautifully blue and not in need of anyone else. Lol. ❤
