A Quote by Lao Tzu on acceptance, body, perception, truth, understanding, and universe

Simply see that you are at the center of the universe, and accept all things and beings as parts of your infinite body. When you perceive that an act done to another is done to yourself, you have understood the great truth.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on admiration, blessings, improvement, order, pride, truth, understanding, universe, and world

They will understand, at best, half of the truth. But those who improve themselves for the sake of the world -- to these, the whole truth of the universe will be revealed.
