"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage."―Lao Tzu

I would have to disagree with that--at least with the romantic types of love.

I put this here, since I recall Shane asked to see the video I mentioned, where Coughlan addresses MartinJWillet. It's not the original video, but it has a lot of elements that he brought up.

It also doesn't sound like something he would have said. I'm calling mistranslation or misattribution.

Yeah, BrainyQuote's not a good source for those. They don't seem to make any effort to verify them the way Wikiquote does.

And I don't see anything like that in my copies of the Tao Te Ching, which is the only thing he wrote that survives. There might be a similar verse that got translated that way, but I don't see any obvious contenders.
