Famous quotes containing the words people and/or lao:

    So people and things don’t pair anymore
    With what they used to pair with before.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    No one asks you to throw Mozart out of the window. Keep Mozart. Cherish him. Keep Moses too, and Buddha and Lao tse and Christ. Keep them in your heart. But make room for the others, the coming ones, the ones who are already scratching on the window-panes.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
