Daodejing 47

 

ImageWhy travel to understand 

the world? Why look

 

out the window

to learn the will 

of the sky?  

 

The farther we go, 

the less we know 

 

of ourselves. 

 

Those free of themselves 

learn without travel;  

envision without looking;

 

they know reality without

going out of their way.
