Zhuangzi, widely considered the intellectual and spiritual successor of Laozi, had a notable impact on Chinese literature, culture and spirituality. Throughout history, Laozi's work was embraced by various anti-authoritarian movements.

And freedom is the greatest joy.
Look within.
Be Still.
Awaken;
Follow then the shining ones, the wise, the awakened, the loving,
For they know how to work and forbear.

Friend or master to go with you,
