Quotes that Stuck Me (from Lao Tzu)

Just reposting Lao Tzu's quotes that poked me nowadays:

He who is contented is rich.

At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.

Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.

Born to be wild - live to outgrow it.

Great acts are made up of small deeds.

He who conquers others is strong; He who conquers himself is mighty.

He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.

He who obtains has little. He who scatters has much.

I have just three things to teach: simplicity, patience, compassion. These three are your greatest treasures.

Manifest plainness, embrace simplicity, reduce selfishness, have few desires.

Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

Silence is a source of great strength.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.

The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own.

To lead people walk behind them.

When you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.
