Lao Tzu Was a Smug Motherfucker

I genuinely cannot remember if I posted this already, but when I search for “Tao” nothing comes up, so here goes: some quotes from that Zen text that proves assholes sleep better.

“I enjoy my serenity and people correct themselves.”

“Ruling a large country is like cooking a small fish.”

“Difficulty and ease bring about each other.”

“In handling affairs, ability is good.”

“While average people are clear and bright, I alone am obscure.”

“If you want to grab the world and run with it, I can see that you will not succeed.”

“You can finish your life without anxiety.”

“People certainly have been confused for a long time.”

“Only by being frugal can you recover quickly.”

“Since there are few who understand me, I am valued.”
