Philosophical Wisdom From Lao Tzu

I read ancient Chinese philosopher and founder of Taoism Lao Tzu recently and was blown away. In this article, I’ll share are a few of my favorite quotes. I hope they inspire you as much as they inspired me.

  1. “Life 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.”
  2. “Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
