Enough

DSC_2682

Knowing others is intelligence;

knowing yourself is true wisdom.

Mastering others is strength;

mastering yourself is true power.

If you realise that you have enough,

you are truly rich.

If you stay in the centre

and embrace death with your whole heart,

you will endure forever.

LAO TZU ~ TAO TE CHING (Chapter 33)
