Liezi (列子 c.450-375BC), Laozi and Zhuangzi are the 3 pillars of philosophical Daoism.

A lesser known philosopher among the trio, we have seen few translations of his work.

The Liezi text of 139 short amusing stories in 8 chapters, are contemplative on life and death.

Tales, Kuafu Chased Sun and Yukong Moved Mountains are often taught in primary school.

Liezi favors enjoying life, fear not death; rejects transcendentals like "riding on wind".

His stories are vivid, full of marvels, often humorous, and reflective of our Delusions.
