Lao Tzu (570 – 490 B.C.E.) was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer. He is the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching, the founder of philosophical Taoism, and revered in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions. Some accounts say Lao Tzu was a scholar who worked as the Keeper of the Archives for the royal court, but in truth very little is known about him. It doesn’t appear that Lao Tzu ever opened a formal school, but nonetheless attracted a large number of students.
Quotes by Lao Tzu…
If you are depressed you are living in the past.
If you are anxious you are living in the future.
If you are at peace you are living in the present.
Silence is a source of Great Strength.
Stop thinking and end your problems.
He who knows others is wise,
He who knows himself is enlightened.
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
Along the way to knowledge, many things are accumulated. Along the way to wisdom, many things are discarded.
