Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

Christopher Robin had a question to ask first, and he was wondering how to ask it.

"Well," he said at last, "it's a very nice house, and if your own house is blown down, you must go somewhere else, mustn't you, Piglet? What would you do, if your house was blown down?"

Before Piglet could think, Pooh answered for him.

"He'd come and live with me," said Pooh, "wouldn't you,Piglet?"

Piglet squeezed his paw.

"Thank you, Pooh," he said, "I should love to."

           --A. A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner (Dutton, 1928)
