Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu (Ancient Daoist Founder, c. 6th and 5th century BCE)

“Highest good is like water. Because water excels in benefiting the myriad creatures without contending with them and settles where none would like to be, it comes close to the way.”

  • From Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching (Book 1, section VIII), translated by D. C. Lau (Penguin Classics, 1963).
