The Sayings of Lie Zi: The Taoist Who Rides the Wind
Together with Lao Zi and Zhuang Zi, Lie Zi 列子 ranks among the most famous Taoist sages. Although a half-legendary figure, the book which carries his name is one of the most important and certainly the most entertaining of the early Taoist classics.
It is a collection of sayings and stories on such universal theme as the joy of living, reconciliation with death, the value of spontaneity, the identity of dream and reality, the limitations of human knowledge, the relativity of standards of conduct, and the role of unpredictable and chance events.
Tsai Chih Chung makes accessible to the modern reader yet another Taoist classic which, together with his Sayings of Lao Zi and Sayings of Zhuang Zi, completes his exploration, in cartoon form, of the Taoist realm.
