Yep, very close to what is taught in the Bible, but it falls short.

Simple and deep. Truthful and wise. Rereadable and timeless.

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.” ~ Tao Te Ching quote

I thought it was so vague that you could make almost anything you liked of it. This in turn made me realise why it is popular with New Age types; and also got me wondering about the accuracy of translations. I bet that my understanding of it is very different to a Chinese person’s.

I enjoyed it, but to be honest if I had to choose between that and the Analects I would go with the Analects.
