Words of Wisdom from the Chinese Sage Lao Tzu
|Lao Tzu (604 BC-517 BC),
Tao Te Ching, Verse 70:
My teachings are easy to understand
and easy to put into practice.
Yet your intellect will never grasp them,
and if you try to practice them, you'll fail.
My teachings are older than the world.
How can you grasp their meaning?
If you want to know me,
look inside your heart.
translated by Stephen Mitchell,
Tao Te Ching (4th century BC)
Harper & Row, New York, 1988)
