“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”

“He who speaks does not know; he who knows does not speak.”

“Doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing.”

“Without opening your door, you can open your heart to the world. Without looking out your window, you can see the essence of the Tao. The more you know, the less you understand. The Master arrives without leaving, sees the light without looking, achieves without doing a thing.”

“Must you value what others value, avoid what others avoid? How ridiculous! ”

“Act without expectation.”

“Become totally empty quiet the restlessness of the mind only then will you witness everything unfolding from emptiness.”

“He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.”

Laozi was a philosopher and poet of ancient China, best known as the author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism.

Laozi was born in the Ku County of the state of Chu, the present day Luyi County of the Henan Province.

Laozi is honored as a deity in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions.

There are about 187 million followers of Chinese folk religions including Taoism in the world today.

Laozi was married, and he was said to have had a son named Zong who became a celebrated soldier.

There are stories that claim Laozi was the Buddha himself.

The book Tao Te Ching is a short, poetic text of 5000 Chinese characters, divided into 81 chapters.

Peter Kropotkin noted that Laozi was among the earliest exponents of essentially anarchist concepts.

In English alone, there exist well over 30 translations of Tao Te Ching.

None of the original texts about Taoism have any reference about Laozi's life.
