What People are saying about this

Sincere words are not showy; Showy words are not sincere. Those who know are not 'widely learned'; Those 'widely learned' do not know. The good do not have a lot; those with a lot are not good.

The Sage accumulates nothing. Having used what he had for others, He has even more. Having given what he had to others, What he has is even greater. Therefore, the Way of Heaven is to benefit and not cause any harm; The Way of Man is to act on behalf of others and not to compete with them.

Meet the Author

The Modern Library has played a significant role in American cultural life for the better part of a century. The series was founded in 1917 by the publishers Boni and Liveright and eight years later acquired by Bennett Cerf and Donald Klopfer. It provided the foundation for their next publishing venture, Random House. The Modern Library has been a staple of the American book trade, providing readers with affordable hardbound editions of important works of literature and thought. For the Modern Library's seventy-fifth anniversary, Random House redesigned the series, restoring as its emblem the running torch-bearer created by Lucian Bernhard in 1925 and refurbishing jackets, bindings, and type, as well as inaugurating a new program of selecting titles. The Modern Library continues to provide the world's best books, at the best prices.
