"Is anybody at home?"
     There was a sudden scuffling noise from inside the hole, and then
     silence.
     "What I said was, `Is anybody at home?'" called out Pooh very loudly.
     "No!" said a voice; and then added, "You needn't shout so loud.  I
     heard you quite well the first time."
     "Bother!" said Pooh.  "Isn't there anybody here at all?"
     "Nobody."

     _Where should they dig the Very Deep Pit?_
     Piglet said that the best place would be somewhere where a Heffalump
     was, just before he fell into it, only about a foot further on.

         But whatever his weight in pounds, shillings and ounces,
         He always seems bigger because of his bounces.

     "And that's the whole poem," he said.  "Do you like it, Piglet?"
     "All except the shillings," said Piglet.  "I don't think they ought to
     be there."
     "They wanted to come in after the pounds," explained Pooh, "so I let
     them.  It is the best way to write poetry, letting things come."

     "Oo, Tigger," he said excitedly, "are we at the top?"
     "No," said Tigger.
     "Are we going to the top?"
     "_No_," said Tigger.
     "Oh!" said Roo rather sadly.  And then he went on hopefully: "That
     was a lovely bit just now, when you pretended we were going to
     fall-bump-to-the-bottom and we didn't.  Will you do that bit again?"
     "NO," said Tigger.

     "It goes in!"
     "So it does!" said Piglet.  "And it comes out!"
     "Doesn't it?" said Eeyore.  "It goes in and out like anything."

     "Oh Eeyore!" cried Christopher Robin.  "Are you hurt?"  And he felt
     him rather anxiously, and dusted him and helped him to stand again.
     Eeyore said nothing for a long time.  And then he said: "Is Tigger
     there?"
     Tigger was there, feeling Bouncy again already.
     "Yes," said Christopher Robin.  "Tigger's here."
     "Well just thank him once for me," said Eeyore.

     "Could you fly up to the letter-box with Piglet on your back?" he
     asked.
     "No," said Piglet quickly.  "He couldn't."

                        The House at Pooh Corner, p. 138

     "There's just one thing," said Piglet, fidgeting a bit.  "I was
     talking to Christopher Robin, and he said that a Kanga was Generally
     Regarded as One of the Fiercer Animals.  I am not frightened of
     Fierce Animals in the ordinary way, but it is well known that if One
     of the Fiercer Animals is Deprived of Its Young, it becomes as
     fierce as Two of the Fiercer Animals.  In which case `_Aha!_' is
     perhaps a _foolish_ thing to say."

     "I'll give you three guesses, Rabbit.  Digging holes in the ground?
     Wrong.  Leaping from branch to branch of a young oak-tree?  Wrong.
     Waiting for somebody to help me out of the river?  Right.  Give
     Rabbit time, and he'll always get the answer."

     Next to his house was a piece of broken board which had:
     "TRESPASSERS W" on it.  When Christopher Robin asked Piglet what it
     meant he said it was his grandfather's name, and had been in the
     family for a long time.  Christopher Robin said you _couldn't_ be
     called Trespassers W, and Piglet said you could, because his
     grandfather was, and it was short for Trespassers Will, which was
     short for Trespassers William.

BANG!!!???***!!!
     Piglet lay there, wondering what had happened.  At first he thought
     that the whole world had blown up; and then he thought that perhaps
     only the Forest part of it had; and then he thought that perhaps
     only _he_ had, and he was now alone in the moon or somewhere, and
     would never see Christopher Robin or Pooh or Eeyore again.  And then
     he thought, "Well, even if I'm in the moon, I needn't be face
     downwards all the time," so he got cautiously up and looked about him.

     "It's a funny thing about Tiggers," whispered Tigger to Roo, "how
     Tiggers _never_ get lost."
     "Why don't they, Tigger?"
     "They just don't," explained Tigger.  "That's how it is."
                     -- Not much of an explanation
                        The House at Pooh Corner, p. 119

     Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he
     thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "In as much as which?"
     --- and sometimes he didn't quite know what he _was_ thinking about.

  After a long munching noise he said:
     "Ee-ers o i a-ors."
     And when Pooh and Piglet said "What?" he said "Skoos ee," and went
     outside for a moment.
     When he came back he said firmly:
     "Tiggers don't like haycorns."
     "But you said they liked everything except honey," said Pooh.
     "Everything except honey _and_ haycorns," explained Tigger.

                        The House at Pooh Corner, p. 24

     "Well," said Pooh, "what I like best ---" and then he had to stop
     and think.  Because although Eating Honey _was_ a very good thing to
     do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was
     better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

     "Help, help!" cried Piglet, "a Heffalump, a Horrible Heffalump!" and
     he scampered off as hard as he could, still crying out, "Help, help,
     a Herrible Hoffalump!  Hoff, Hoff, a Hellible Horralump!  Holl,
     Holl, a Hoffable Hellerump!"

"Is it One of the Fiercer Animals?" he said, looking the other way.
     Pooh nodded.
     "It's a Jagular," he said.
     "What do Jagulars do?" asked Piglet, hoping that they wouldn't.

     Pooh looked at his two paws.  He knew that one of them was the
     right, and he knew that when you had decided which one of them was
     the right, then the other one was the left, but he never could
     remember how to begin.

"If anyone wants to clap," said Eeyore when he had read this, "now
     is the time to do it."

"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.

     anything."

     follows."

     "Shall I look, too?" said Pooh, who was beginning to feel a little
     eleven o'clockish.  And he found a small tin of condensed milk, and
     something seem to tell him that Tiggers didn't like this, so he took
     it into a corner by itself, and went with it to see that nobody
     interrupted it.

     "Handsome bell-rope, isn't it?" said Owl.
     Pooh nodded.
     "It reminds me of something," he said, "but I can't think what.
     Where did you get it?"
     "I just came across it in the Forest.  It was hanging over a bush,
     and I thought at first somebody lived there, so I rang it, and
     nothing happened, and then I rang it again very loudly, and it came
     off in my hand, and as nobody seemed to want it, I took it home and
     ---"

     it."

     "`_Aha!_' means `We'll tell you where Baby Roo is, if you promise to
     go away from the Forest and never come back.'  Now don't talk while
     I think."
     Pooh went into a corner and tried to saying `Aha!' in that sort of
     voice.  Sometimes it seemed to him that it did mean what Rabbit
     said, and sometimes it seemed to him that it didn't.  "I suppose
     it's just practice," he thought.
