Daodejing 11

ImageNo matter how many spokes

a wheel may have, it is the hole 

at the center that makes it work.

 

Clay makes cups and bowls, 

yet it is the hollowness that

makes them 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.
