Lau Tzu’s Wisdom

Lau Tzu

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.

  1. To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.
  2. If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. 
  3. When I let go of who I am, I become what I might be.
  4. 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.
  5. He who does not trust enough will not be trusted.
  6. From caring comes courage.
  7. An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox.
  8. He who is contented is rich.
  9. Great acts are made up of small deeds.
  10. One who is too insistent on his own views finds few to agree with him.
  11. If you are anxious, you live in the future. If you are peaceful, you live in the present.
  12. Knowledge is the treasure, but practise is the key.
