The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

The Tao is an empty vessel


The Tao is an empty vessel;
it is used, but never filled.
Oh, unfathomable source of 10,000 things!
Blunt the sharpness, untangle the knot,
Soften the glare, merge with dust.
Oh, hidden deep but ever present!
I do not know from whence it comes.
It is the forefather of the gods.
~Lao Tsu
