By Lao Tzu
Thirty spokes together make a wheel for a cart.
It is the empty space in the centre of the wheel which enables it to be used.
Mould clay into a vessel.
It is the emptiness within that creates the usefulness of the vessel.
Cut out doors and windows in a house.
It is the empty space inside which creates the usefulness of the house.
Thus what we have may be something substantial,
But its usefulness lies in its emptiness.
