Professional COMM 4/29: Lao Tzu


"An ant on the move does more than a dozing ox." -- Lao Tzu


This quote comes to us, through many centuries, from a Chinese teacher and philosopher named Lao Tzu. Lao Tzu is said to have written (or perhaps compiled) the text known as Tao de Jing. This book is the cornerstone of Taoism and one of the oldest and most beautiful religious texts in existence. This particular quote is one that has a very profound message for all of us in it. Too often we are content to let our life-position limit us more than it should. While we complain and let negativity paralyze us, we miss the opprotunity to move towards our most important goals (or perhaps to form those goals).
