Teddy Bears

To a child, Teddy is a bridge between a human and an animal. He doesn't mind being dressed in ridiculous hats, or even being read to. You can blame him for anything, and he won't deny it. His marvellous face expresses anything a child wants to feel or hear.

Teddy Bears are like keys . . . They're always in the first place you think they'd be, and the last place you look.

In a world where everyone seems to be larger and louder than yourself, it is very comforting to have a small, quiet companion.

A bear teaches us that if the heart is true, it doesn't matter much if an ear drops off.

Wake in the deepest dark of night and hear the driving rain. Reach out a hand and take a paw and go to sleep again.

Bears sleep by day. At night they stay awake to chase away bad dreams.

A bear remains a bear - even when most of him has fallen off or worn away.

One never quite gets over a lost bear.

Nothing is so aggravating than calmness.

This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.
