- Did he pro-claim this quote? I know Modern English didn't exist in his time, thus this is a translation. “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished” – Lao Tzu : quotes
I disagree. The quote is hyperbolic nonsense. It doesn't even appear in the Tao Te Ching, which leads me to believe that the quote is mis-attributed.
The closest approximation I can find comes from chapter 73: "The way of Heaven (aka Nature) excels in laying plans though it appears to slack."1
- What did he mean by "everything is accomplished"? What's "everything"?
I read Quora, I think Lao was wrong, because cancer, colds, and flus still can't be cured. In other words, cures haven't been accomplished. Thus everything is NOT accomplished.
