Laozi Quotes

Do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are small. A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Laozi QuotesWhen you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

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.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

Quotes of Wisdom by Laozi

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

At the centre of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

Mastering others is strength. Mastering yourself is true power.

Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.

Quotes of Wisdom by Laozi

Love is a decision. Not an emotion.

Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.

The best fighter is never angry.

The hard and mighty lie beneath the ground. While the tender and weak dance on the breeze above.

New Beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.

If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be truly fulfilled.

Quotes of Wisdom by Laozi

The heart that gives, gathers.

To lead people, walk behind them.

He who knows much about others may be learned, but he who understands himself is more intelligent. He who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still.

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

Quotes of Wisdom by Laozi

Laozi Quotes

Stop thinking, and end your problems.

Respond intelligently even to unintelligent treatment

Peace is our original state.

What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.

Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Laozi Quotes

If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.

Quotes of Wisdom by Laozi

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.

In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true. In ruling, be just. In business, be competent. In action, watch the timing.

To attain knowledge, add things everyday. To attain wisdom, remove things every day.

By letting go it all gets done.

Stop leaving and you will arrive. Stop searching and you will see. Stop running away and you will be found.

“If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.” Laozi

Be careful what you water your dreams with. Water them with worry and fear and you will produce weeds that choke the life from your dream. Water them with optimism and solutions and you will cultivate success. Always be on the lookout for ways to turn a problem into an opportunity for success. Always be on the lookout for ways to nurture your dream.

Laozi

Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.

Who acts in stillness finds stillness in his life.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

Act without expectation.

The more you know the less you understand.

Laozi QuotesLife is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.

Simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures. Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being. Patient with both friends and enemies,you accord with the way things are. Compassionate toward yourself, you reconcile all beings in the world.

A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.

Laozi

Silence is a source of Great Strength.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

The more laws that are written, the more criminals are produced.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

A man with outward courage dares to die; a man with inner courage dares to live.

Time is a created thing. To say “I don’t have time,” is like saying, “I don’t want to”.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everyone will respect you.

When the student is ready the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready… The teacher will Disappear.

Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

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.

Laozi
