Ancient Words of Wisdom

Tao Te Ching



Individuality

Tao Te Ching

Tao Te Ching

My words are easy to understand
And my actions are easy to perform
Yet no other can understand or perform them.

My words have meaning; my actions have reason;
Yet these cannot be known and I cannot be known.

We are each unique, and therefore valuable;
Though the sage wears coarse clothes, his heart is jade.
