They'll always support a leader like that, and because he doesn't try to compete with anybody, nobody is able to compete with him. Everyone under heaven says that my Tao is great and beyond compare. Because it is great, If it were not different, it would have vanished long ago.


The three most important qualities in life are Compassion, or showing kindness and mercy to others, Simplicity, or knowing what a thing is worth, and Humbleness, or daring not to be ahead of others.

Courage stems from showing kindness and mercy to others.

Generosity starts with knowing what a thing is worth. True leadership begins with daring not to be ahead of others.

But these days, I see everyone trying to act courageous without any trace of compassion. They try to be generous but they have no Simplicity in their own lives. They act like leaders, but they have no sense of Humbleness. No good can come of this. If you want to get ahead, show people compassion.

When other people attack you, defend yourself with compassion. It's the most powerful force in the universe.

A good soldier is not violent. A good warrior does not lose his temper. A great conqueror does not challenge others.

A good leader is humble. The best way of employing a man is to serve under him This is the virtue of not contending; this is called directing the strength of others; Such is regarded as achieving harmony with nature. Such is the perfect Oneness of true nature.

There's an old military saying: "I'd rather face an attack than have to make one. I'd rather retreat a foot than try to advance an inch.

When you defend yourself without any show of force, you give your opponent nothing to fight. Attacking an enemy you've underestimated is a costly mistake. When two forces oppose each other, the winner is the one who feels the grief. My words of Tao is easy to understand and to practice. In my words of Tao, there is the subtle truth. In my deeds, there is the Way of Tao. People didn't get that, which is why they didn't understand Tao.

And the less they understood Tao, the more meaningful the Tao became. That's why the Masters live simply, hiding their wisdom deep within themselves. Knowing ignorance is strength. Ignoring knowledge is sickness. If one is sick of sickness, then one is not sick.

The sage is not sick because he is sick of that sickness. When you show no fear at all, the universe gives you something to really be afraid of. When people do not respect the authority, There shall be great misfortune. Don't try to fence people in or grind them down.

Just let them be, and they'll always be on your side. Like this: Like Loading My aim was not a line by line translation, but to render Lao-Tzu in the clearest, most lucid English as possible. As part of my research, I read hundreds of Chinese commentaries, which were translated into English and thousands of translated poems. The 81 poems are finished, though I am still working on the explanatory chapters to go in the book.

These poems are longer than the originals, because I break down the symbolic content, informing the reader of the spiritual instruction and frame of mind Lao-Tzu intends the reader to adopt. Otherwise, you have a profound saying that remains inaccessible to the Western reader.

No translation up until now that is has managed to break down this barrier. The barrier is neither lexical nor linguistic but semantic. Why so? Because Lao-Tzu was an esoteric writer and his writings encrypt deep secrets — because the whole premise behind his undertaking is that the Tao is indescribable; literally, it is beyond the Human mind. In the same way Christ abandoned conventional language for the parable, Lao-Tzu abandons the vernacular for the aphorism, choosing instead, to deploy powerful symbols that illuminate his maxims.

Both teachers had the same project in mind — the spiritual awakening and illumination of their disciples. In this, they fail to miss the mark.

I am a poet, so I felt I was a good person to have a go at this project. Most of my version is written in a rhythmical, non-formal free verse — though the piece is both musical and poetical in its construction and meter.Thus it is hard to know definitively what was actually said and when it was said.

A great conqueror does not challenge others. I frequently use modern phenomena as references, so that it's obvious how much Lao Tzu still has to teach us. By seeing key passages of the text in a spiritual rather than philosophical context, one can get the true meaning of what is being said. But most of his text deals with matters that are just as true now, in the Western world, as they were in China some 2, years ago.
