“Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.”- Lao Tzu
“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.”- Lao Tzu
These would have to be two of my favorite quotes from him. I 0ften enjoy learning about all the ancient philosophers and all the different viewpoints they had about life and religion. I swear they had life figured out much better than anybody these days do.
