Tao Te Chin


The Tao principle is what happens of itself.




He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.
He who does not trust enough, Will not be trusted.
He who is contented is rich.
He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.
He who obtains has little. He who scatters has much.

In dwelling, live close to the ground. In thinking, keep to the simple. In conflict, be fair and generous. In governing, donít try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family life, be completely present.

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.

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.

Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.

We cannot see our reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.
We make a vessel from a lump of clay; It is the space inside the vessel that makes it useful. ... Thus, while the tangible has advantages, It is the intangible that makes it useful.
We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.
