Lao Tzu Quotes M-T T-W
|Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
Nature is not human hearted.
Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can
Of all that is good, sublimity is supreme. Succeeding is the
coming together of all that is beautiful. Furtherance is the
agreement of all that is just. Perseverance is the foundation
of all actions.
One can not reflect in streaming water. Only those who know
internal peace can give it to others.
One may know the world without going out of doors. One may see
the Way of Heaven without looking through windows. The further
one goes, the less one knows.
One who is too insistent on his own views, finds few to agree
One who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
People are difficult to govern because they have too much knowledge.
People in their handlings of affairs often fail when they are
about to succeed. If one remains as careful at the end as he
was at the beginning, there will be no failure.
Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment.
Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of happiness.
Silence is a source of great strength.
Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated
fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.
Stop thinking, and end your problems.
Superior leaders get things done with very little motion. They
impart instruction not through many words, but through a few
deeds. They keep informed about everything but interfere hardly
at all. They are catalysts, and though things would not get
done as well if they weren't there, when they succeed they take
no credit. And, because they take no credit, credit never leaves
The career of a sage is of two kinds: He is either honored by
all in the world, Like a flower waving its head, Or else he
disappears into the silent forest.
The female always overcomes the male by tranquility, And by
tranquility she is underneath.
The five colors blind the eye. The five tones deafen the ear.
The five flavors dull the taste. Racing and hunting madden the
mind. Precious things lead one astray.
Therefore the sage is guided by what he feels and not by what
he sees. He lets go of that and chooses this.
The higher the sun ariseth, the less shadow doth he cast; even
so the greater is the goodness, the less doth it covet praise;
yet cannot avoid its rewards in honors.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of
consciousness into our awareness.
The more laws and order are made prominent, the more thieves
and robbers there will be.
The people are hungry: It is because those in authority eat
up too much in taxes.
The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm
until the end of your days.
The sage does not accumulate for himself. The more he uses for
others, the more he has himself, The more he gives to others,
the more he possesses of his own. The Way of Heaven is to benefit
others and not to injure. The Way of the sage is to act but
not to compete.
The sage wears clothes of coarse cloth but carries jewels in
his bosom; He knows himself but does not display himself; He
loves himself but does not hold himself in high esteem.
The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither
need you do anything but be yourself.
The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things
in the world.
