By on 3.2.09 | 6:26PM

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

--Tao te Ching, by Lao-Tzu (China, attr. 6th Century BC)
Translation by Stephen Mitchell (Harper Collins, 1988)
