Lao Tse - Tao Te Ching (XLI-L)

The gentlest thing in the world
overcomes the hardest thing in the world.
That which has no substance
enters where there is no space.
This shows the value of non-action.

Lao Tse - Tao Te Ching (XXI-XXX)

There was something formless and perfect
before the universe was born.
It is serene. Empty.
Solitary. Unchanging.
Infinite. Eternally present.
It is the mother of the universe.
For lack of a better name,
I call it the Tao.

Lao Tse - Tao Te Ching (XI-XX)

When the great Tao is forgotten,
goodness and piety appear.
When the body’s intelligence declines,
cleverness and knowledge step forth.
When there is no peace in the family,
filial piety begins.
When the country falls into chaos,
patriotism is born.

Lao Tse - Tao Te Ching (I-X)

The Tao is called the Great Mother:
empty yet inexhaustible,
it gives birth to infinite worlds.

It is always present within you.
You can use it any way you want.

Dhammapada(Dhp XVI) Piyavagga: Dear Ones

Having applied himself
to what was not his own task,
and not having applied himself
to what was,
having disregarded the goal
to grasp at what he held dear,
he now envies those
who kept after themselves,
took themselves
to task.

Dhammapada (Dhp XIV) - Buddhavagga: Awakened

Whose conquest can’t be undone,
whose conquest no one in the world
can reach;
awakened, his pasture endless,
pathless:
by what path will you lead him astray?

Dhammapada(Dhp XXI) - Pakinnakavagga: Miscellany

If, by forsaking
a limited ease,

an abundance of ease,
the enlightened man

the limited ease
for the sake
of the abundant.
