Book of Lieh-Tzu, The by LIEZIJoin Now to Follow

Although Lieh Tzu's work has evidently passed through the hands of many editors and gathered numerous accretions, there remains a considerable nucleus which in all probability was committed to writing by Lieh Tzu's immediate disciples, and is therefore older than the genuine parts of Chuang Tzu. There are some obvious analogies between the two authors, and indeed a certain amount of matter common to both; but on the whole Lieh Tzu's book bears an unmistakable impress of its own. The geniality of its tone contrasts with the somewhat hard brilliancy of Chuang Tzu, and a certain kindly sympathy with the aged, the poor and the humble of this life, not excluding the brute creation, makes itself felt throughout. - From Lionel Giles Introduction<p></p>

Goody-Naughty Book, The by RIPPEY, Sarah CoryJoin Now to Follow

<p><i>The Goody-Naughty Book</i> was originally published as two books back to back. Opening the book from one end, the reader experiences "The Goody Side" where the children are polite and thoughtful. However, turning the book over and beginning from the other side, one reads "The Naughty Side" where the children are lazy and irritable. These short, moral stories teach children the proper way to behave and that there are consequences if they don't.</p> <p>To read along and enjoy the illustrations, please visit the HTML version of this text at Project Gutenberg: <a href="http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/22197">The Goody-Naughty Book</a>.</p>
