        Lao Tzu supposedly wrote the Dao De Jing Or Tao Te Ching depending on which method you are using.
        Not familiar with the other guys sorry
        As for the meaning of life, there is none. Life is here to recycle the free enrgy at the surface of the earth.

        Hi Wisdom.
        Lao Tzu is the philosopher who wrote the Tao Te Ching. He is considered the Father Of Taoism. He taught that the meaning of life was reaching tranquility.
        The central vehicle of achieving tranquillity was the Tao, a term which has been translated as ‘the way’ or ‘the path.’ Te in this context refers to virtue and Ching refers to laws. Thus the Tao Te Ching could be translated as The Law of Virtue and it’s Way. The Tao was the central mystical term of the Lao Tzu and the Taoists, a formless, unfathomable source of all things.
        Here is a brief part of the Tao Te Ching:
        Look, it cannot be seen – it is beyond form.
        Listen, it cannot be heard – it is beyond sound.
        Grasp, it cannot be held – it is intangible.
        These three are indefinable, they are one.
        —————
        The Hua Hu Ching is another writing by Lao Tzu. It is a writing to teach people how to understand the Tao Te Ching. It is also to help teach people how to lead virtuous lives.
        This is a small excerpt from the Hua Hu Ching:
        Those who wish to embody the Tao should embrace all things. To embrace all things means first that one holds no anger or resistance toward any idea or thing, living or dead, formed or formless. Acceptance is the very essence of the Tao. To embrace all things means also that one rids oneself of any concept of separation; male and female, self and other, life and death. Division is contrary to the nature of the Tao. Foregoing antagonism and separation, one enters in the harmonious oneness of all things.
        Basically, acept all as equals, treat all as equals, with no one being better than another. Be kind to all. Do not hate others.
        It is similar to the teachings of Jesus, when he says:
        “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Who does He mean when He says “neighbor?” He means all people. He also says:
        “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You would certainly want people to treat you kindly; therefore, you treat others with kindness also.
        Peace.
