    Default Wise sayings we often forget

    These are the wise sayings of 老子 we often forget.

    Neglect of them often leads to unhappiness, unsettled life and unfulfilled dream.

    天下皆知美之为美,斯恶矣;皆知善之为善,斯不善已。

    飄風不終朝,驟雨不終日。

    知人者智,自知者明。勝人者有力,自勝者強。知足者富。強行者有志。

    聖人自知不自見;自愛不自貴。

    信言不美。美言不信。善者不辩。辩者不善。知者不博。博者不知。

    道,可道也,非恒道也;名,可名也,非恒名也。
    无名,万物之始也;有名,万物之母也。
    故常垣(恒)无欲也,以观其眇(妙);垣(恒)有欲也,以观其所徼。
    两者同出,异名同谓,玄之又玄,众眇(妙)之门。

    A very wise and old philosophy which actually speak of an ever changing world. Even when it rings truth now... it may change in future for whatever reasons and circumstances... and it also actually means that nothing is forever, there is a start and there is an end.
