Governing a great nation is much like cooking a small fish.–Laozi, c. 550 BC
Laozi was an Ancient Chinese mystic philosopher, best known as author of the Tao Te Ching. His association with the Tao Te Ching has led him to be traditionally considered the founder of Taoism. Taoist propriety and ethics emphasize the The Three Jewels of Tao Te Ching: compassion, moderation, and humility, while its thought generally focuses on nature, the relationship between humanity and the cosmos; health and longevity; and Wu Wei (action through inaction).
