Laozi

To lead people walk behind them.
When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
He who talks more is sooner exhausted.
When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.
The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.
Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.
One who is too insistent on his own views, finds few to agree with him.
He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.
Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing.
Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
The power of intuitive understanding will protect you from harm until the end of your days.
Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.
Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy.
Silence is a source of great strength.
The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.
At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.
An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox
Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
If you correct your mind, the rest of your life will fall into place.
