The Sage's Tao Te Ching
Ancient Advice for the Second Half of LifeBook - 2010 | Tenth anniversary edition
The tenth anniversary edition of William Martin?s free-verse interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, written expressly for those coming into the fullness of their wisdom
Lao Tzu?s Tao Te Ching , one of the world?s most widely read books of wisdom, reminds its readers that the sage has been venerated in China for thousands of years. In this free-verse interpretation of the Tao , William Martin subtly and powerfully captures the complex emotions connected with growing older. He encourages today?s sages to recognize their inestimable worth in a youth-centric world that often goes astray: ?Will I be able to harvest my life in compassion and love for the world? Will I find in my own heart the wisdom for which I long? This question trumps all others for me. I suspect it is the same for you.?
