 Laozi

Laozi

Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline; simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Manifest plainness, embrace simplicity, reduce selfishness, have few desires.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A tree trunk the size of a man grows from a blade as thin as a hair. A tower nine stories high is built from a small heap of earth.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Without stirring abroad, one can know the whole world; Without looking out of the window one can see the way of heaven. The further one goes the less one knows.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, not so good when people obey and acclaim him, worse when they despise him. But of a good leader who talks little when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: We did it ourselves.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness; the second is frugality; the third is humility, which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
It is the Vague and Elusive. Meet it and you will not see its head. Follow it and you will not see its back.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Truthful words are not beautiful; beautiful words are not truthful. Good words are not persuasive; persuasive words are not good.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the wise man looks into space and he knows there is no limited dimensions.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who gains a victory over other men is strong; but he who gains a victory over himself is all powerful.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The snow goose need not bathe to make itself white. Neither need you do anything but be yourself.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
He who tip-toes cannot stand; he who strides cannot walk.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent upon arriving. A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Because of a great love, one is courageous.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The supreme excellence is not to win a hundred victories in a hundred battles. The supreme excellence is to subdue the armies of your enemies without even having to fight them.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
In the world there is nothing more submissive and weak than water. Yet for attacking that which is hard and strong nothing can surpass it.More Laozi [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
