It's hard to refute any of the ideas that Lao Tzu, regarded as the found of Taoism, has to offer. Every page is quotable. Every saying has balance. His teachings emphasize the art of doing without doing. If Lao Tzu's teachings were scientific, they'd be the equivalent of Newton's 3rd Law - for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
Regardless of what faith you have or religion you follow, this book and the teachings contained herein can be applied to our everyday lives. All it takes is some introspection, observation, and dedication to balance.
|A version, not a translation, by Stephen Mitchell. That's an important distinction.
