New! Purely Inspirational Quote

You may have heard the inspirational phrase “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Do you know its origins? I didn’t. I was delighted to find that it is a paraphrase of two lines from the _Tao Te Ching_, which was written by Lao Tzu around 500 BCE. Here is an English translation:

“The journey of a thousand milesstarts from beneath your feet.”

Mitchell, Stephen. _Tao Te Ching, A New English Version, with Foreword and Notes_. HarperCollins Publishers, 1991, 2000, 2006
