[Sigmund Freud] [Asterix] [Winnie the Pooh]
"What's this you're writing?" asked Pooh, climbing on the writing table.
"The tao of Pooh," I replied.
"The how of Pooh?" asked Pooh, smudging one of the words I had just written.
"The tao of Pooh", I replied, poking his paw away with my pencil.
"It seems more like the ow ! of Pooh," asked Pooh, rubbing his paw.
"Well, it's not," I replied huffily.
"What's it all about?" asked Pooh, leaning forward & smearing another word.
"It's about how to stay happily and calm under all circumstances!" I yelled.
"Have you read it?" asked Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh has a certain way about him, a way of doing things which has made him the world's most beloved bear. And Pooh's Way, as Benjamin Hoff brilliantly demonstrates, seems strangely close to the ancient Chinese Principles of Taoism.
