Lao Tzu quotes

Lao Tzu was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer.

Some of Laozi's famous sayings or quotes: 

❀ Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

❀ Without Darkness, there can be no Light.

❀ The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

❀ Silence is a source of great strength.

❀ The truth is not always beautiful, nor beautiful words the truth.

❀ Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates LOVE.

❀ Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.

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

❀ Great acts are made up of small deeds.

❀ If you are depressed you are ling in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

❀ Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend. Non-being is the greatest joy.

❀ The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives the others, the more he has for his own.

❀ Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

❀ Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

❀ When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

❀ When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

❀ If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.

❀ Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

❀ He who controls others may be powerful, but he who mastered himself is mightier still. 

Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.”
