The more one governs, the less one achieves the desired result.....The more restrictions and prohibitions there are in the world, the poorer the people will be......The more laws are promulgated, the more thieves and bandits there will be.

When taxes are too high, people will go hungry;
When the government is too intrusive, people lose their spirit.
Act for the people's benefit. Trust them, leave them alone.

Governing a large country is like frying a small fish; you spoil it with too much poking.





By : Lao Tsu

Founder of Taoism 2500 years ago

As quoted in For Good and Evil, The Impact of Taxes on the Course of Civilization by Charles Adams
