Tao Te Ching for Today

Recently I was gifted with a set of Tao Te Ching cards by a dear friend. As it turns out, the cards are a complete set of all the wisdom found by the author in a very old copy of the Tao Te Ching. What a blessing! The card I chose today was lovely and I wish to share it with you. May you be blessed ~*~

To not amass

Truthful words are not beautiful
Beautiful words are not truthful
Good men do not argue
He who argues is not good
He who knows, does not learn everything
He who learns everything, does not know

The sage does not hoard
The more he does for others, the more he has
The more he gives to others, the greater his abundance

The Tao of Heaven gives benefit but no harm
The Tao of the sage accomplishes good deeds
but makes no claims
