Lau Tzu’s Wisdom
January 6, 2023
I love Lau Tzu’s aphorisms. Lau Tzu was a Chinese philosopher who was also a contemporary of Confucious. There are numerous quotes attributed to him on the Internet that I have noted in my notebook of quotations.
I am sharing twelve of my favorite Lau Tzu quotes.
- To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.
- If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
- When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.
- 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.
- He who does not trust enough will not be trusted.
- From caring comes courage.
- An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox.
- He who is contented is rich.
- Great acts are made up of small deeds.
- One who is too insistent on his own views finds few to agree with him.
- If you are anxious, you live in the future. If you are peaceful, you live in the present.
- Knowledge is the treasure, but practise is the key.
