‘We join spokes together in a wheel,

but it is the center hole

that makes the wagon move.

 

We shape clay into a pot,

but it is the emptiness inside

that holds whatever we want.

 

We hammer wood for a house,

but it is the inner space

that makes it livable.

 

We work with being,

but non-being is what we use.’

 

Lao Tzu
