Tao Te Ching Chapter 24-2 Striding
A striding man doesn't go. (Ch.24)
Don't you have people around you, who are living on the fast track?
Do they bother you?
Or, do you get jealous of their fast lives?
If one is striding, he cannot go far because he gets tired.
"Don't work too hard."
"Don't learn too much."
Lao Tzu asks you kindly not to get tired.
Don't we wish that we could have known Lao Tzu's teachings when we were in school?

-Who are you? Who are these people? A national identity is getting to be a serious issue in some countries. If you ask me who the Japanese are, I will answer: "They are happy-go-lucky Tahitians in serious Samurai clothes who want to be someone but a samurai or a Tahitian". Please watch those films. You will see why.
