Some quotes I really liked from the Taoist reading from my world history class:

"He lets all things rise and fall,
Nutures, but does not interfere,
Gives without demanding,
and is content."

"It is the way of Nature,
An eternal decay and renewal.
Understanding this brings enlightenment,
Ignorance at this brings misery."

"When the best rulers achieve their purpose,
their subjects claim the achievements as their own."

"Religion is the end of love and honesty,
The beginning of confusion;
Faith is a colorful hope or fear,
The origin of folly."

I don't think I could ever be a Taoist.
