With his sunny disposition and sweet temperament (not to mention tooth), Winnie the Pooh has been a beloved character for nearly a century.

The big-hearted bear became a staple in children's media after his debut 1926. Author A.A. Milne was inspired to create Winnie the Pooh by a teddy bear he bought for his son, Christopher Robin.

Milne crafted an imaginative story about Pooh, Christopher Robin, and his friends in the Hundred Acre Woods, which he turned into a book, “Winnie-the-Pooh," in 1926.

Though he may be a bear of little brain, as Milne affectionately described him, Pooh has managed to capture the hearts of generations with his innocent wisdom.

Here are 30 Winnie the Pooh quotes that are as warm as a bear hug.
