Tao Teh Ching

A Quote by Lao Tzu on dao, tao, way, tao teh ching, lao tzu, sickness, health, ignorance, and knowledge

To realize that our knowledge is ignorance, This is a noble insight. To regard our ignorance as knowledge, This is mental sickness. Only when we are sick of the sickness Shall we cease to be sick. The Sage is not sick, being sick of sickness; This is the secret of health. -ch. 71, Tao Teh Ching, trans. John C. H. Wu, Shambhala, Boston & London, c.1990

A Quote by Lao Tzu on lao tzu, dao, tao, tao teh ching, way, and no action

Without going out of your door, You can know the ways of the world. Without peeping through your window, you can see the Way of Heaven. The farther you go, The less you know. Thus, the Sage knows without travelling, Sees without looking, And achieves without Ado. 

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