    Could we deal with the quote in its context? (From link above)

    I often am amazed at the amount of logic and reasoning found in children's classics.

    Yes. Let's base our foreign policy on Winnie The pooh. That makes a lot of sense.:tonofbricks:

    Are you willing to discuss the quote?

    We might be amazed what any of us could accomplish if we would stop bumping and think for a bit.

    More important is the quote from the same article that I posted.

    Is this the quote you are talking about?

    I don't have any real problems with that statement.

    You are right. People think that the books about Winnie the Pooh are books for children, and they are good stories for children. But actually they are adult books with great wisdom in them for those who have eyes to see. Same with Charlotte's Web and other great childrens books.

    Everyone should read Winnie the Pooh ever year or so to see again the wisdom in those pages.

    The more I think about it the more I agree than Winnie the Pooh should have a part. Let's stop bumping and have a think about it?

    We might also be well advised to consult Dr Suess. Remember "The Butter Battle Book"?

    Another reasonable quote from the article.

    The guy is already a Pentagon advisor. Sounds like the kind of guy not afraid to think outside the box.

    Whoops, apologies. Maybe you are saying we should consult Charlie Brown? Not a bad idea Rev.

    You honestly don't think there are lessons for the real world in children's literature?

    Can we deal with the quote in question? Does anyone think it unwise to "stomp bumping" long enough to think about it?

    You actually think children's literature should be used to shape US foreign policy.

    Nope, but the wisdom it contains such as in the quote in question is more than worthy of consideration.

    What is wring with the quote? Or are we only going to consider the headline in the Telegraph?
