Holy books and place of worshipEdit
The holy book for taoism is called the "Dao De Jing" which means "the way and the power of the way."
Here is a chapter in the tao te ching titled
"Mindful of Little Things: tao te ching"
"It's easy to keep hold of what hasn't stirred, easy to plan what hasn't occured. It's easy to shatter delicate things. Do things before they happen. Get them straight before they get mixed up.
The tree you can't reach your arms around, grew from tiny seedlings. The nine-story tower rises, from a heap of clay. The ten-thousand-mile journey, begins beneath your foot."
