Excerpts from the book by Smith, Huston. The World's Religions, Revised and Updated (PP. 252-254). HarperOne. Kindle-Version.
Covered here in 7 minutes:
The Taoists rejected all forms of self-assertiveness and competition. The ax falls first on the tallest tree. Selfless as melting ice is one of their descriptive figures. Chuang Tzu's description of his grand funeral. The notion of the relativity of all values and as its correlative, the identity of all opposites. Chuang Tzu on death. Passages in the Tao Te Ching that read almost like the sermon on the mount. Confucius represents the classical, Lao Tzu the romantic. Confucius roams within society, Lao Tzu wonders beyond.
