“If the Great Way perishes there will morality and duty.

When cleverness and knowledge arise great lies will flourish.

When relatives fall out with one another there will be filial duty and love.

When states are in confusion there will be faithful servants.” 

-Lao Tzu quotes

Know that it too is a vessel of perfection.

Just as you breathe in and breathe out,

there is a time of being ahead and a time for being behind,

a time for being in motion and a time for being at rest,

a time for being vigorous and a time for being exhausted,

a time for being safe and a time for being in danger.”

– Lao Tzu
