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.
Blunt the sharpness,
untangle the knot,
soften the glare…

Yield and overcome;
bend and be straight;
empty and be full;
wear out and be new;
have little and gain;
have much and be confused.

~Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
