The Tao of Pooh
How would you describe Winnie the Pooh?

It's surprising how well Pooh and his friends represent the ideals of Taoism -- a set of religious beliefs practiced in China and along the Silk Road.

Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life.
Everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
To see what is right and not do it is the worst cowardice.
Study the past if you would define the future. That's right!!!
The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.
And remember, no matter where you go, there you are.
