A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, balance, extremes, and strength

So sometimes things are ahead and sometimes they are behind;
Sometimes breathing is hard, sometimes it comes easily;
Sometimes there is strength and sometimes weakness;
Sometimes one is up and sometimes down.
Therefore the sage avoids extremes, excesses, and complacency.

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)

A Quote by Jerry Porras on success, balance, and life

Enduringly successful people, many of whom live a life that’s a gift to the world, don’t raise balance as a major issue—not because they had it masterfully handled, but because they were all busy doing what mattered to them.
