L ove is of all the passions the strongest, for it attacks simultaneously the head, the heart, and the senses.


Daoism quote 7234 | 



I f there is to be peace in the world, There must be peace in the nations. If there is to be peace in the nations, There must be peace in the cities. If there is to be peace in the cities, There must be peace between neighbours. If there is to be peace between neighbours, There must be peace in the home. If there is to be peace in the home, There must be peace in the heart.


Daoism quote 7235 | 



N ot seeking, not expecting, she is present, and can welcome all things.


Daoism quote 7236 | 



W ould you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.


Daoism quote 7237 | 



D o you want to improve the world? I donít think it can be done. The world is sacred. It canít be improved. If you tamper with it, youíll ruin it. If you treat it like an object, youíll lose it.


Daoism quote 7238 | 



T here is a time for being ahead, a time for being behind; a time for being in motion, a time for being at rest; a time for being vigorous, a time for being exhausted; a time for being safe, a time for being in danger. The Master sees things as they are, without trying to control them. He lets them go their own way, and resides at the centre of the circle.

I f you are untrustworthy, people will not trust you.


Daoism quote 7240 |

Daoism quote 7241 | 



S ome lose yet gain, others gain and yet lose.


Daoism quote 7242 | 



T he difficult problems in life always start off being simple. Great affairs always start off being small.


Daoism quote 7243 | 



I f you look to others for fulfilment, you will never truly be fulfilled. If your happiness depends on money, you will never be happy with yourself. 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.


Daoism quote 7244 |

Daoism quote 7247 | 



S hape clay into a vessel; It is the space within that makes it useful. Cut doors and windows for a room; It is the holes which make it useful. Therefore benefit comes from what is there; Usefulness from what is not there.

I mmersed in the wonder of the Tao, you can deal with whatever life brings you, and when death comes, you are ready.


Daoism quote 7249 | 



R ushing into action, you fail. Trying to grasp things, you lose them. Forcing a project to completion, you ruin what was almost ripe.


Daoism quote 7250 | 



T he Master takes action by letting things take their course. He remains as calm at the end as at the beginning. He has nothing, thus has nothing to lose. What he desires is non-desire; what he learns is to unlearn. He simply reminds people of who they have always been. He cares about nothing but the Tao. Thus he can care for all things.


Daoism quote 7251 | 



S pring comes, and the grass grows by itself.


Daoism quote 7252 | 



A man who knows how little he knows is well, a man who knows how much he knows is sick. If, when you see the symptoms, you can tell, your cure is quick. A sound man knows that sickness makes him sick and before he catches it his cure is quick.


Daoism quote 7253 | 



I f you wish to be out front, then act as if you were behind.


Daoism quote 7254 | 




D o not conquer the world with force, for force only causes resistance. Thorns spring up when an army passes. Years of misery follow a great victory. Do only what needs to be done without using violence.
