Zhuangzi Quote: “The hundred parts of the body are all complete in their places. Which should one prefer? Do you like them all equally? Are they all servants? Are they unable to control one another and need a ruler? Or do they become rulers and servants in turn? Is there any true ruler other than themselves?”
Zhuangzi Quote: “Can a man cling to the positive without any negative in contrast to which it is seen to be positive? If he claims to do so he is a rouge or a madman.”

Zhuangzi Quote: “When the shoe fits, the foot is forgotten. When the belt fits, the belly is forgotten. When the heart is right, “for” and “against” are forgotten. No drives, no compulsions, no needs, no attractions: Then your affairs are under control. You are a free man.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “A fish-trap is for catching fish; once you’ve caught the fish, you can forget about the trap. A rabbit-snare is for catching rabbits; once you’ve caught the rabbit, you can forget about the snare. Words are for catching ideas; once you’ve caught the idea, you can forget about the words. Where can I find a person who knows how to forget about words so that I can have a few words with them?”
Zhuangzi Quote: “Only he who has no use for the empire is fit to be entrusted with it.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “To use a horse to show that a horse is not a horse is not as good as using a non-horse to show that a horse is not a horse...”
Zhuangzi Quote: “Waiting for changing opinions is like waiting for nothing.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “When you’re betting for tiles in an archery contest, you shoot with skill. When you’re betting for fancy belt buckles, you worry about your aim. And when you’re betting for real gold, you’re a nervous wreck. Your skill is the same in all three cases – but because one prize means more to you than another, you let outside considerations weigh on your mind. He who looks too hard at the outside gets clumsy on the inside.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “If you were to hide the world in the world, so that nothing could get away, this would be the final reality of the constancy of things.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “For all people strive to grasp what they do not know, while none strive to grasp what they already know; and all strive to discredit what they do not excel in, while none strive to discredit what they do excel in. This is why there is chaos.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “Don’t go in and hide; don’t come out and shine; stand stock-still in the middle.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “You forget your feet when the shoes are comfortable. You forget your waist when the belt is comfortable. Understanding forgets right and wrong when the mind is comfortable. There is no change in what is inside, no following what is outside, when the adjustment to events is comfortable. You begin with what is comfortable and never experience what is uncomfortable when you know the comfort of forgetting what is comfortable.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “The true man breathes with his heels.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “Things joined by profit, when pressed by misfortune and danger, will cast each other aside.”

Zhuangzi Quote: “The sage is still not because he takes stillness to be good and therefore is still. The ten thousand things are insufficient to distract his mind – that is the reason he is still.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “If right were ultimately right, its differentiation from not-right would require no debate.”
Zhuangzi Quote: “How do I know that the dead don’t regret the way they used to cling to life?”
Zhuangzi Quote: “When Zhuangzi was about to die, his disciples expressed a desire to give him a sumptuous burial. Zhuangzi said, “I will have heaven and earth for my coffin and coffin shell, the sun and moon for my pair of jade discs, the stars and constellations for my pearls and beads, and the ten thousand things for my parting gifts. The furnishings for my funeral are already prepared – what is there to add?”
Zhuangzi Quote: “A good completion takes a long time; a bad completion cannot be changed later.”
