Tao Te Ching
People usually fail when they are on the verge of success. So give as much care to the end as to the beginning; Then there will be no failure.
In fact, common sense pervades the Tao Te Ching. Take these lines, which discuss the roots of crime: Or these, from chapter 38, which describe the toll of illusory thought: When the Tao is lost, there is goodness.
When goodness is lost, there is morality. The first of these strategies creates memorable phrases, while the second forces to create reconciliations of the supposed contradictions.

Instead, in political figures such as Tony Blair and Boris Johnson, lao tzu tao te ching mass-media landscape favours survival of the biggest and most monstrously deformed egos.
They're an unavoidable by-product of power, a scum of pure ego that forms on the surface of society and imitates the appearance of lao tzu tao te ching. The Tao Te Ching is a 2,year-old reminder that today, as then, every one of us has a choice to practise self-awareness and exercise our own power in and over the world.

That might come as more of a nasty wakeup call than a comfort to some of us. If you want to get rid of something, you must first allow it to flourish. If you want to take something, you must first allow it to be given. This is called the subtle perception of lao tzu tao te ching way things are.
