The clearest comment about the “water” philosophy of Lao-Tzu (老子) was in eighth chapter. The clearest comment about the "water" philosophy of Kuan-tse (管子) was in water-earth (水地篇). Water-earth (水地篇) points out that “water”is the source of everything, and Kuan-tse (管子) thought that “water” can hide mysterious beings. Kuan tse (管子) also got ideas about channelizing riversand watercourses from the "water" of philosophy. He found that human nature was deeply affected by water. The “water” philosophy of Kuan-tse (管子): humility, hiding mysterious beings, pure nature, washing spots off, standard, following the law of Nature. Besides water-earth (水地篇), many chapters provided other ideas about the "water" philosophy: “water” flows from high ground to low ground, and it shows that every action has inevitability; Kuan-tse (管子) emphasized that we must understand tendency and deal properly with changes.
