Winnie the Pooh: “It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like ‘What about lunch?'”

Ulysses, with some creative interpretation, on why studying is important: “‘Brothers,’ I said, ‘o you, who having crossed a hundred thousand dangers, reach the west, to this brief waking time that still is left unto your senses, you must not deny experience of that which lies beyond the sun, and of the world that is unpeopled. Consider well the seed that gave you birth: you were not made to live your lives as brutes, but to be followers of worth and knowledge.'”

— Canto XXVI, lines 112-120, Dante, The Inferno
