Begin difficult things while they are easy. A thousand-mile journey begins with one step.
The universe is sacred. You cannot improve it.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
Kindness in words creates confidence, Kindness in thinking creates profoundness, Kindness in giving creates love.
Lao Tzu fell asleep and dreamt he was a butterfly.
Upon wakening he asked...
Am I a man who has just been dreaming that he was a butterfly?
Or a sleeping butterfly now dreaming he is a man?
Simplicity is the highest quality of expression. It is that quality to which art comes in its supreme moments. It makes the final stage of growth. It is the rarest, as it is the most precious result which men secure in their self-training.
Stop leaving and you will arrive. Stop searching and you will see. Stop running away and you will be found.
Those who know do not say. Those who say do not know.
He who does not trust enough, will not be trusted.
Manifest plainness. Embrace simplicity. Reduce selfishness. Have few desires.
