  1. Tao te Ching, 48. Lao-Tzu:

    Learning builds daily accumulation, but the practice of Tao builds daily simplification. Simplify and simplify, until all contamination from relative, contridictory thinking is eliminated. Then one does nothing, yet nothing is left undone. One who wins the world does so by not meddling with it. One who meddles with the world loses it.

  2. Lao-Tzu, Tao Te Ching:

    The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. The name that can be named is not the eternal Name.

  3. Lao Tzu:

    The best man is like water. Water is good it benefits all things and does not compete with them. It dwells in lowly places that all disdain. This is why it is so near to Tao.

  4. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Quando você está andando na estrada que é pavimentada com tijolos dourados de boas intenções, lembre-se que ele pode acabar onde você nunca gostaria de entrar -, porque as boas intenções muitas vezes vêm com imprevistos não tão boas consequências inesperadas. Então você tem que estar alerta, em todos os momentos. Fortalecer suas boas intenções com boas ações, e Deus sempre estará com você em sua viagem ao seu destino desejado. Cheerio, meu amigo.

  5. Lao Tzu:

    Thus it is said: The path into the light seems dark, the path forward seems to go back, the direct path seems long, true power seems weak, true purity seems tarnished, true steadfastness seems changeable, true clarity seems obscure, the greatest are seems unsophisticated, the greatest love seems indifferent, the greatest wisdom seems childish. The Tao is nowhere to be found. Yet it nourishes and completes all things.
