Mid Week Quote: Laozi

Happy Wednesday!

Firstly, I want to say a big hello and thank you to all my new followers, I hope you will enjoy my blog.

My chosen quote is attributed to Laozi who was a philosopher in ancient China. The quote is from theĀ Tao Te ChingĀ which is regarded by some as a text made up from many individuals input and by others as soley written by Laozi. Laozi is regarded as one of the founders of Tao. Taoist thought emphasises nonaction, contentedness and simplicity in life. The quote reflects this.


“When you are content to be simply yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.”



c. 550 BCE


The photo is from a walk yesterday and the reason I chose it was because at the time I was content and feeling very relaxed.
