The Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu or Laozi is well known for the book Tao Te Ching.
Tao Te Ching is a collection of sayings expounding the principal Taoist teachings with maxims and aphorisms.
Lao Tzu was the founder of philosophical Taoism and he is widely respected as a religious deity in various traditional Chinese religious schools of thought.
In fact all of the quotes which I published here are gathered from his book “Ta Te Ching”.
For instance, questionable quotations like, “Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength; loving someone deeply gives you courage“, “To see things in the seed, that is genius“, or “To lead people walk behind them“.
Frankly, I do not where do they get them from. I could not locate them from any reliable source.
