The Sayings of Lao Tzu by Lao Tzu ( - c. 550 BCE). Translated by Lionel Giles (1875 - 1958)

Volunteers outside the USA: Lionel Giles died in 1958. The author's work is still protected by copyright in places like Europe, where copyright is author's death plus 70 years, Australia (author's death plus 70 years for authors who died after 1955) or Canada (author's death plus 50 years), UNLESS the rule of shorter term applies.
Lao-Tzu, also known as Laozi was a Chinese philosopher believed to have lived in the 6th century BCE and is credited with writing the Tao-Te-Ching which centers around the idea that the way of virtue lies in simplicity and a recognition of a natural, universal force known as the Tao. He is traditionally regarded as the founder of Taoism. This book is a compilation of his most profound writings translated directly from ancient Chinese texts. ( Nemo)

This project is now complete. All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/the-sayings-of-lao-tzu-by-lao-tzu/
  • Text source (only read from this text!): https://archive.org/details/sayingsoflaotzu00laoz
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

MC for the project will be Amy (alg1001)

Amy, I will need 9 section plus a "0" section for the Introduction for a total of 10 sections.

DPL for this project will be Helen (HZFerr)

Amy, also just as an FYI, I am recording the 1st chapter of this book as well for Sue Anderson's short non-fiction collection, but that will be a separate recording and not the same one as part of this project.

sect 3 The Doctrine of Inaction
PL OK

N. you always do the thought provoking projects.

This poem brings up a recent conversation I had (two weeks ago) with an 87 year old Swiss citizen.
Topic: Switzerland's neutrality (during WWll) "Inaction" is an action.

Have a safe Memorial Day weekend. :D
