Thought for the day, Monday 9th August

“The sanest man sets up no deed, lays down no law,
Takes everything that happens as it comes,
As something to animate, not to appropriate,
To earn, not to own,
To accept naturally without self-importance:
If you never assume importance,
You never lose it.”
Lao Tzu (BCE 604 – 531), Chinese philosopher and author of the Tao Te Ching, quoted in Fragments of Holiness for Daily Reflection
