23 is a “magical” number and as such the 23rd inspirational quote needs to be treated accordingly.
There are many interpretations of the Tao Teh Ching by Lao-Tzu – this one is courtesy of S.Mitchell
Express yourself completely,
then keep quiet.
Be like the forces of nature:
when it blows, there is only wind;
when it rains, there is only rain;
when the clouds pass, the sun shines through.
If you open yourself to the Tao,
you are at one with the Tao
and you can embody it completely.
If you open yourself to insight,
you are at one with insight
and you can use it completely.
If you open yourself to loss,
you are at one with loss
and you can accept it completely.
Open yourself to the Tao,
then trust your natural responses;
and everything will fall into place.
This is my favourite verse from the “Tao”
I call it “The Steady Force of Attitude”
