I'm not an expert for any asian philosophy, but "I know what I like", to quote Genesis (the band, not the book). And I like this short flashmovie.
Well-animated (the idea with the wind was neat), nice soundtrack, calm yet important message - I enjoyed watching!

Although it carries some of the message of the Tao Te Ching, I don't think it's a quote that can actually be attributed to it in any historical translation... XD

Nice animation tho :D

Yea, I agree there are a lot of quotes like that haha. This quote is still a good starting point for understanding presence to some degree I think, enough to make you at least wonder a bit. And thank you!
