Tao of the Day - Lieh Tzu on Tyranny  
The ear wants to hear music.
The eye wants to see beauty.
The nose craves fragrance.
The mouth desires to speak of what is true and false.
The body desires warmth and good food.
The mind wants to be at liberty to go where it wills.
If these natural urges are thwarted, our very nature is repressed.
Tyrants suppress us in these ways.
Let us depose them and wait happily for death.
- Lieh Tzu (trans. Freke)
