07/11/2013: On ‘Friends-and-Relations’

“I haven’t seen anybody today,” said Pooh, “not so as to say ‘Hallo, Small,’ to. Did you want him for anything?”

“I don’t want him,” said Rabbit. “But it’s always useful to know where a friend-and-relation is, whether you want him or whether you don’t.”

– A.A. Milne
The House at Pooh Corner
(New York: Puffin Books, 1956), pg. 39
