Milne was educated at the University of Cambridge and initially worked as a playwright; however it was as the writer of Winnie the Pooh in 1926 that he became famous. It was followed up by The House at Pooh Corner two year later. Other than that, he was a prolific writer who wrote children’s short story and poetry collections, newspaper columns, plays and had also been a columnist for the popular magazine Punch.
I am the youngest of six. There's the smart one and the pretty one, and I am the loud one.
There's not a lot to do in a small town, but i grew up on a cattle farm... some people would say there's nothing to do on a cattle farm, but I'd say there's everything to do.
I grew up listening to an album start to finish, and you don't skip songs. You don't listen to a Paul Simon record and skip a song: you listen to it the same way you would eat a meal... the way the person who prepared that meal for you means for you to experience it. That's how you should do it before you add salt and pepper to it.
I'm 5 foot, 3 inches. Even if I hit you, I'm probably not going to knock you down.
I'm kind of a squirrely individual.
You don't change country music; it changes you.
Nothing lights a fire under you like somebody saying, 'You're not going to be able to do it.'
It's all been guerrilla warfare trying to get my name out there.
I was a terrible student, but I never missed a music class. In fact, I don't even think I attended most of my gen-ed classes, but I never missed a single music class.
It's not a problem if 20,000 people heard my music for free, but it's a huge problem if 20,000 people never heard my music.
I listened to a lot of No Doubt stuff when I was in high school - or maybe it was middle school... I don't want to age myself too much!
I started playing mandolin when I was three or four years old because I was too small to be playing guitar. As I got older and more responsible with holding instruments, I was allowed to play my mom's guitar that she had.
