More Quotes from Lao Tzu:


The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.
Lao Tzu

... integral wisdom involves a direct participation in every moment the observer and the observed are dissolved in the light of pure awareness, and no mental concepts or attitudes are present to dim that light.
Lao Tzu

To lead people walk behind them.
Lao Tzu

Find a teacher who is an integral being, a beacon who extends his light and virtue with equal ease to those who appreciate him and those who don't. Shape yourself in his mold, bathe in his nourishing radiance, and reflect it out to the rest of the world.
Lao Tzu

If the Great Way perishes there will morality and duty. When cleverness and knowledge arise great lies will flourish. When relatives fall out with one another there will be filial duty and love. When states are in confusion there will be faithful servants.
Lao Tzu
