More Quotes from Lao Tzu:


He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty.
Lao Tzu

To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation one's time, abilities, and possessions in service, whenever and wherever needed, without prejudice concerning the identity of those in need.
Lao Tzu

The highest goodness is like water. Water benefits all things and does not compete. It stays in the lowly places which others despise. Therefore it is near The Eternal.
Lao Tzu

Under heaven all can see beauty as beauty only because there is ugliness. All can know good as good only because there is evil.
Lao Tzu

Understanding others is knowledge, Understanding oneself is enlightenment Conquering others is power, Conquering oneself is strength.
Lao Tzu

When virtue is lost, benevolence appears, when benevolence is lost right conduct appears, when right conduct is lost, expedience appears. Expediency is the mere shadow of right and truth; it is the beginning of disorder.
Lao Tzu
