Laozi / Lao-Tzu – The mark of a moderate man

Share this quote:
Lao TzuThe mark of a moderate man is freedom from his own ideas.
Tolerant like the sky,
all-pervading like sunlight,
firm like a mountain,
supple like a tree in the wind,
he has no destination in view
and makes use of anything
life happens to bring his way.
