Just love this one:
http://www.quora.com/Fiction/If-you-cou … choose-Why

"I would choose to be in the head of Winnie the Pooh for a whole bunch of reasons.
==================
He has an uncluttered mind:
==================
“Rabbit's clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."
"And he has Brain."
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit has Brain."
There was a long silence.
"I suppose," said Pooh, "that that's why he never understands anything.”
==================
He's wise
==================
“Sometimes," said Pooh, "the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.”
==================
He's Kind
==================
“If people were superior to animals, they'd take good care of them," said Pooh.
==================
He makes people feel good just because he's there
==================
“Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind. "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you.”
==================
He's not limited by the Universe
==================
“We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?" asked Piglet.
"Even longer," Pooh answered.
==================
He knows his limitations anyway
==================
“I don't see much sense in that," said Rabbit.
"No," said Pooh humbly, "there isn't. But there was going to be when I began it. It's just that something happened to it along the way.”
==================
He loves you even when you make fun of him
==================
“Hallo, Rabbit,” he said, “is that you?”
"Let’s pretend it isn’t,” said Rabbit, “and see what happens.”
==================
He's skeptical and open at the same time
==================
“Weeds are flowers, too, once you get to know them.”
==================
He says what he thinks
==================
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
==================
He understands Zen Paradox
==================
“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”
==================
He lives in the NOW:
==================
“What day is it?"
It's today," squeaked Piglet.
My favorite day," said Pooh.”

Actually, I could spend a whole lifetime wandering around in Pooh's mind. But I'd take a month in a shot."

And I'm pretty sure that the Pooh would be the best photographer ever.
As an example, I always got the best results doing actually nothing as well.
