"People certainly have been confused for a long time."

The introduction and endnotes went a long way helping me read this. I can see why it takes a lifetime to decipher this. ( )

Evolved individuals keep their minds open and impartial because fixed opinions or belief systems distort the flow of pure information coming in from the outside world. The way of power involves giving in. Timeless wisdom. ( )

About the author: according to Wikipedia, Stephen Mitchell was educated at Amherst College, University of Paris and Yale University. He has translated and adapted many classic titles. About the book: quoting from the dust jacket, "[Louise Erdrich said] 'I read the Stephen Mitchell translation of the Tao Te Ching in one sitting, three times. It is stunning, so lovely. It is a treasure."

I felt this was one of those things I should read to help understand another culture from another place and time. It was enjoyable from that point-of-view, but I didn't gain anything else from it. ( )

Epigraph
Who can find a good woman?

She is precious beyond all things.

Her husband's heart trusts her completely.

She is his best reward.

PROV. 31:10-11 (Mitchell translation)

TO VICKI (Mitchell translation)
First words
The tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao. (Mitchell translation)
I will begin with a comparison.
The person of superior integrity does not insist upon his integrity. (Mair translation)
Way-making (dao) that can be put into words is not really way-making, And naming (ming) that can assign fixed reference to things is not really naming. (Ames/Hall translation)
The way that can be told
Is not the constant way;
The name that can be named
Is not the constant name. (Lau translation)

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 014044131X, Paperback)

Traditionally attributed to Lao Tzu, an older contemporary of Confucius (551-479 BC), it is now thought that the work was compiled in about the fourth century BC. An anthology of wise sayings, it offers a model by which the individual can live rather than explaining the human place in the universe. The moral code it encourages is based on modesty and self-restraint, and the rewards reaped for such a life are harmony and flow of life.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:08 -0400)
