Tao Te Ching
Man takes his law from the Earth; the Earth takes its law from Heaven; Heaven takes it law from the Tao. The law of the Tao is its being what it is.
The Tao Te Ching (simplified Chinese: 道德经; traditional Chinese: 道德經; pinyin: Dàodé Jīng[tâu tɤ̌ tɕíŋ] also known as Lao Tzu or Laozi,is a Chinese classic text traditionally credited to the 6th-century BC sage Laozi. The text’s authorship, date of composition and date of compilation are debated. The oldest excavated portion dates back to the late 4th century BC, but modern scholarship dates other parts of the text as having been written—or at least compiled—later than the earliest portions of the Zhuangzi.
