Summary
"The Wisdom of the Tao is filled with 144 ancient stories that express profound truth by fusing delightful anecdotes with philosophy. Here are stories that lead people to do the following: flow with life, live from the heart, develop an openness to possibilities, live in balance, drop expectations, embrace acceptance...[Stories] help us make sense of who we are and how we got here. They keep us sane as we try to absorb our experiences, our aging, and our emotions. Stories help us visualize the future by taking the messages of yesterday and helping us get tomorroe right."--Page 2 of cover

"The majority of these stories are taken from two Taoist sources, Zhuangzi (370-287 BCE) and Liezi (c. fifth century BCE). We don't know much about either author ... Both books belong to the Taoist Canon, a collection of about 1,400 texts"--Page xv
