"Rabbit's clever," said Pooh thoughtfully.
"Yes," said Piglet, "Rabbit's clever."

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on tao, understanding, and scholars

A well-frog cannot imagine the ocean, nor can a summer insect conceive of ice. How then can a scholar understand the Tao? He is restricted by his own learning.

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on tao, life, and living

Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong.

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on knowledge, wisdom, compassion, and tao

Those who have no compassion have no wisdom. Knowledge, yes; cleverness, maybe; wisdom, no. A clever mind is not a heart. Knowledge doesn't really care. Wisdom does."

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on earth

in

Whether many people realize it yet or not, man, the Inferior Animal, has by now proved himself incapable of keeping his own species - and others - alive for very much longer.  So the earth has begun its own plan to set things right.
