A Quote by Lao Tzu on life, starvation, death, and rebellion

Why are the people starving?-
Because their grain is being eaten up by the taxes
That's why they're starving

Why are people rebellious?-
Because those above them meddle in their lives
That's why they're rebellious

Why do people regard death so lightly?-
Because they are so involved with their own living
That's why they regard death so lightly

In the end,
The treasure of life is missed by those who hold on
    and gained by those who let go

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)
