Citáty Benjamin Hoff


„Se zvířaty si povídá hodně lidí, ale ne všichni jim naslouchají.“

„Do you really want to be happy? You can begin by being appreciative of who you are and what you've got.“ The Tao of Pooh


„Lots of people talk to animals... Not very many listen though... that's the problem.“ The Tao of Pooh

„The surest way to become Tense, Awkward, and Confused is to develop a mind that tries too hard - one that thinks too much.“ The Tao of Pooh

„The main problem with this great obsession for saving time is very simple: you can't save time. You can only spend it. But you can spend it wisely or foolishly.“ The Tao of Pooh

„Things just happen in the right way, at the right time. At least when you let them, when you work with circumstances instead of saying, 'This isn't supposed to be happening this way,' and trying harder to make it happen some other way.“ The Tao of Pooh

„There are things about ourselves that we need to get rid of; there are things we need to change. But at the same time, we do not need to be too desperate, too ruthless, too combative. Along the way to usefulness and happiness, many of those things will change themselves, and the others can be worked on as we go. The first thing we need to do is recognize and trust our own Inner Nature, and not lose sight of it.“ The Tao of Pooh

„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.“
The Tao of Pooh


„You'd be surprised how many people violate this simple principle every day of their lives and try to fit square pegs into round holes, ignoring the clear reality that Things Are As They Are.“ The Tao of Pooh

„We don't need to shift our responsibilities onto the shoulders of some deified Spiritual Superman, or sit around and wait for Fate to come knocking at the door. We simply need to believe in the power that's within us, and use it. When we do that, and stop imitating others and competing against them, things begin to work for us.“ The Tao of Pooh

„How can you get very far,
If you don't know who you are?
How can you do what you ought,
If you don't know what you've got?
And if you don't know which to do
Of all the things in front of you,
Then what you'll have when you are through
Is just a mess without a clue
Of all the best that can come true
If you know What and Which and Who.“
The Tao of Pooh

„Wisdom, Happiness, and Courage are not waiting somewhere out beyond sight at the end of a straight line; they're part of a continuous cycle that begins right here. They're not only the ending, but the beginning as well.“ The Tao of Pooh


„You can't save time. You can only spend it, but you can spend it wisely or foolishly.“ The Tao of Pooh

„If people were superior to animals, they'd take good care of them," said Pooh.“ The Tao of Pooh

„A clever mind is not a heart. Knowledge doesn't really care, wisdom does.“ The Tao of Pooh

„The Christmas presents once opened are Not So Much Fun as they were while we were in the process of examining, lifting, shaking, thinking about, and opening them. Three hundred sixty-five days later, we try again and find that the same thing has happened. Each time the goal is reached, it becomes Not So Much Fun, and we're off to reach the next one, then the next one, then the next.

That doesn't mean that the goals we have don't count. They do, mostly because they cause us to go through the process and it's the process that makes us wise, happy, or whatever. If we do things in the wrong sort of way, it makes us miserable, angry, confused, and things like that. The goal has to be right for us, and it has to be beneficial, in order to ensure a beneficial process. But aside from that, it's really the process that's important.“
The Tao of Pooh
