28 Christopher Robin Quotes That Will Nourish Your Soul

by Louise W. Rice

In recent years, we have gotten several movies about the world’s most loveable bear, and I, for one, am here for it. In 2017, Goodbye Christopher Robin told the story of the creation of A. A. Milne’s famous group of characters and the toll it took on the author’s family. A year later, we got another movie focused on the boy behind the bear — which is the one I wanted to discuss! So let’s take a stroll down memory lane with the best Christopher Robin quotes from the 2018 live-action film.

The movie follows an adult Christopher Robin who’s completely lost touch with the playful child he used to be. Simultaneously, we get to see how hard his friends and family are trying to get through to him. The latest installment of Christopher Robin’s adventures contained all of the heartbreaking, hilarious, and heartfelt moments I wanted to see. And now I can enjoy them anytime I read these quotes!
