A. A. Milne
Source/Notes:
Widely attributed to A. A. Milne, but it hasn't been found in any of Milne's original works. Probably it's originated from the following lines from Milne's book "The House at Pooh Corner" (1928): "Pooh, promise me you won't forget about me, ever. Not even when I'm a hundred. / Pooh thought for a little. / How old I shall be then? / Ninety-nine. / Pooh nodded. / I promise, he said."
