"People sometimes fail when they are on the verge of success. So give as much care to the end as to the beginning." – Lao-Tzu
The ancient Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu is believed to have lived in the 4th century B.C. Little is known about him, but it is likely that he wrote the Tao te Ching, the foundation of Taoist philosophy, and engaged Confucius in debate, honing both men's belief systems.
