Friday meditation: Curating Tao Te Ching

The following are excerpts from Tao Te Ching. All have something to say about the  nature of wisdom. Enjoy this Friday’s meditation.

 I.

To speak little is natural.
High winds do not last all morning;
heavy winds do not last all day.
 

  II. 

The ancient Masters
didn’t try to educate the people,
but kindly taught them to not-know.
When they think that they know the answers,
people are difficult to guide.
When they know that they don’t know,
people can find their own way.
 

III.

Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.
