" This ancient Taoist text, allegedly written around the 6th century BC, never fails to deliver wisdom to every facet of life. There are many legends surrounding the writing of this book, although modern historians widely agree that it is probably a collection of wise sayings than the work of one man. There is no god-head in Taoism and no enlightenment. The text is more a manual on the art of living and governing. There has been significant, modern interest in Taoism, in conjunction with the rise of Capitalism, posing the question, opiate for precarious times or opposition to material dissatisfaction? "
