Lao-Tsu

The highest good is like water.
Water give life to the 10,000 things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.
In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In daily life, be competent.
In action, be aware of the time and the season.
No fight: No blame…
—  Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, verse 8

Empty yourself of everything. Let the mind become still. The ten thousand things rise and fall while the Self watches their return. They grow and flourish and then return to the Source. Returning to the Source is stillness, which is the way of Nature.

~Laozi
Tao Te Ching, Verse 16

(Source: Tao & Zen Facebook Page)

Those who know do not talk.
Those who talk do not know.

Keep your mouth closed.
Guard your senses.
Temper your sharpness.
Simplify your problems.
Mask your brightness.
Be at one with the dust of the earth.
This is primal union.

He who has achieved this state
Is unconcerned with friends and enemies,
With good and harm, with honor and disgrace.
This therefore is the highest state or man.
—  Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
Karşınıza istediğiniz insanlar değil, ihtiyacınız olan insanlar çıkar. Öyle ki bu insanlar size yardım edecek, sizi incitecek, size acı verecek, sizi terk edecek, sizi sevecek ve olmanız gereken insan olabilmenizi sağlayacaktır…
—  Lao Tsu
