How often do we hurry about in our lives attempting “to do” everything we feel we must accomplish?

This quote by ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu reminds us that a force as powerful as Nature (with a “to-do list” greater than we could imagine) does not hurry and still gets the important stuff accomplished.
