Words of Wisdom

Published 08/11/2012 by inspiringyourspirit

Knowing others is to be clever.
Knowing yourself is to be enlightened.
Overcoming others requires force.
Overcoming yourself requires strength.

Lao Tzu

A Person of high virtue is not conscious of virtue
and therefore possesses virtue.
A person of little virtue tries to be virtuous and
therefore lacks virtue.

Lao Tzu

Those who look only at themselves see little.
Those who justify themselves are not distinguished.
Those who brag have no merit.
The work of prideful people will not endure.

Lao Tzu

When desires are restrained there will be peace,
and then all under heaven will be at rest.

Lao Tzu
