Inner Quiet

When he died, he was two hundred fifty-six years old.

When Li was a child, he left home to follow some wandering herbalists.

His favorite way of traveling was what he called “walking lightly.”

He advised those who wanted strong health to “sit like a turtle, walk like a pigeon, and sleep like a dog.”

When asked for his major secret, though, he would reply,

“inner quiet.”

– The Tao of Pooh, pg. 110
