The Wisdom of Lao Tzu, Sheryl Crow and Arlene Lorenzo

"War is based on greed, and there are huge karmic retributions that will follow"
I think the best way to solving problems is to not have enemies."
-Sheryl Crow

War is not healthy for children and other living things.”
-Arlene Lorenzo (from the movie Dick)

Those who know do not talk.
Those who talk do not know.

Keep your mouth closed.
Guard your senses.
Temper your sharpness.
Simplify your problems.
Mask your brightness.
Be at one with the dust of the earth.
This is primal union.

He who has achieved this state
Is unconcerned with friends and enemies,
With good and harm, with honour and disgrace.
This therefore is the highest state of man

-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching
