The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Do not ask me where I am going

Do not ask me where I am going
as I travel in this limitless world
where every step I take is my home

  3. Without going outside, you may know the whole world.
    Without looking through the window, you may see the ways of heaven.
    The farther you go, the less you know.

    Thus the sage knows without traveling;
    He sees without looking;
    He works without doing.
