DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — AUGUST 31, 2019

True words aren’t eloquent;
eloquent words aren’t true.
Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.

The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others,
the happier he is.
The more he gives to others,
the wealthier he is.

The Tao nourishes by not forcing.
By not dominating, the Master leads.

-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 81, interpretation by Stephen Mitchell)
