DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — JANUARY 18, 2019

Only when the Tao is forgotten is there a need for morality and righteousness.

Only when intelligence and cleverness appear is there a need for pretense.

Only when families are not in harmony is there a need for filial piety.

Only when the state is in disorder is there a need for patriotism.

–Lao-tzu–

(from Tao Te Ching, verse 18, translation by Robert Brookes)
