Daodejing 11 #dao

A wheel might have thirty spokes,
yet it is the hole in the center
that makes it a wheel that works.

Clay forms bowls, yet
it is the hollowness that
makes bowls useful.

Walls make a room, yet
the empty space between
is where we live.

What is there
is useful;
what is not there
is useful too.
