Taoism Classic Sayings

Taoism classic sayings – How to be a great leader? Business has much to learn from the Taoism. The art of life, the art of management!

Tao Te Ching (Daodejing) was the Taoism classic which illustrated a unique way of life and philosophy in China. The Daodejing presented a way of life intended to restore harmony and tranquility to a kingdom with widespread disorders.

In an earlier post, I put together some quotes from this great wisdom book by one of the greatest prophets in ancient China, Laozi. See: A bit About Taoism, Laozi and Tao Te Ching

Here are more classic sayings from the great book teaching people how to be a great leader. In my opinion, business has much to learn from the Taoism. The art of life, the art of management!

  • The sage does not keep things to himself. The more he offers, the more he has. The more he gives away, the more he receives.
  • If you want to be above the people, place yourself below them first. If you want to be the leader of men, put their interest before your own. Therefore they can support you without feeling it is a burden.
  • To be noble, you must take the humble as your root.
  • He who is good at bringing act the best in men takes a humble attitude.

    Hi Mitch,
    Thanks for the message.
    If you have the wisdom book by Laozi, you should be able to find it at Chapter 81. Here is the Hanzi: 圣人不积,既以为人己愈有,既以与人己愈多。
