Daodejing 45

Seen from The Way,
the most thoroughly completed
looks like so many pieces.

Use it and use it.
Its fullness looks
like a hole.

The straightest looks crooked;
the most skillful looks clumsy;
eloquence sounds like stuttering.

Motion beats the cold;
stillness beats the heat.

Peace and serenity
control the universe.
