The three bears stared for some time out of the window from whence Goldilocks took her flight; and though at first they were quite angry with the little girl and ready to eat her up, they soon got over these bad feelings, remembering that it is wise to
BEAR AND FORBEAR.

Why, he actually hugged himself with delight! But as this feeling might not last long, I should advise you not to pry into other people’s affairs; and if you go in the woods keep away from the house of THE THREE BEARS!
