We shall get there someday.

All quotes from 'Winnie The Pooh'

"You seem so sad, Eeyore."
"Sad? Why should I be sad? It's my birthday... the happiest day of the year."
"Your birthday?" said Pooh in great surprise.
"Of course it is, can't you see? Look at all the presents I've had." He waved a foot from side to side. "Look at the birthday cake, candles, and pink sugar."
Pooh looked, first to the right and then to the left.
"Presents? said Pooh. "Birthday cake?" said Pooh. "Where?"
"Can't you see them?"
"No," said Pooh.
"Neither can I," said Eeyore. "Joke," he explained. "Ha. ha." 

"If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear."

"People who don't think probably don't have brains. Rather, they have gray fluff that's blown into their heads by mistake."

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

"Some people care too much, I think it's called love."

"You can't stay in your corner of the forest, waiting for others to come to you; you have to go to them sometimes."

"A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside."

"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like 'What about lunch?'"

"Sometimes, if you stand on the bottom rail of a bridge and lean over to watch the river slipping slowly away beneath you, you will suddenly know everything there is to be known."

"Promise me you'll never forget me, because if I thought you would I'd never leave."

"They're funny things: accidents. You never have them 'til you're having them."

"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."

"It's snowing still," said Eeyore gloomily.
"So it is."
"And freezing."
"Is it?"
"Yes," said Eeyore. "However," he said, brightening a little, "we haven't had an earthquake lately."

"Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon."

Tigger: That icky, sticky stuff is only fit for heffalumps and woozles.
Pooh: You mean elephants and weasels.
Tigger: That's what I said, heffalumps and woozles.

Pooh: Good morning, Christopher Robin. 
Christopher Robin: Oh, good morning, Winnie the Pooh.
Eeyore: If it is a good morning, which I doubt.

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing" he said.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh," he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?" 
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
