Lao Tzu

Tao Te Ching


Sincere words are not fine;
fine words are not sincere.
Those who follow the Tao do not dispute it;
The disputatious are not skilled in the Tao.
Those who know are not learned;
The learned do not know.

The sage does not accumulate (for himself).
The more that he expends for others, the more does he possess of his own;
the more that he gives to others, the more does he have himself.

With all the sharpness of the Way of Heaven, it injures not;
with all the doing in the way of the sage he does not strive.
