Quote of the day…


“The men of old knew that life comes without warning, and as
suddenly goes. They denied none of their natural inclinations, and
repressed none of their bodily desires. They never felt the spur
of fame. They sauntered through life gathering its pleasures as
the impulse moved them. Since they cared nothing for fame after
death, they were beyond the law. For name and praise, sooner or
later, a long life or short one, they cared not at all.”

– Lao Tzu

    Very interesting quote. Do you have the context it was stated in? What men of old?

    It has given me pause for thought, to be sure. I am just wondering if a context could help me discern which thoughts lie in fact and not fiction.
