Taoist Quotes


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 way you can go isn't the real way.
The name you can say isn't the real name,
So the unwanting soul sees what is hidden,
And the ever wanting soul sees only what it wants.

If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.

No one can see their reflection in running water. It is only in still water that we can see.

All difficult things have their origin in that which is easy, and great things in that which is small.

The journey is the reward.

When you stand with your two feet on the ground, you will always keep your balance.
