Tao Te Ching

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, 3/5

This work presents an interesting worldview that focuses on survival: advising people to avoid action, desire, ambition, confrontation and intellectualism.  The tone is bleak, but fascinating, and it offers some very good insights into human behavior.  While shorter than Confucius’ Analects, it is also less accessible.  Much of the content is obscure and very difficult to understand, however, an enjoyable aura of ancientness surrounds even the unintelligible bits.
