"What is non existent has boundless uses"

The wheel’s hub holds thirty spokes
Utility depends on the hole through the hub.

The potter’s clay forms a vessel
It is the space within that serves.

A house is built with solid walls
The nothingness of window and door alone renders it usable.

That which exists may be transformed
What is non existent has boundless uses.

– by Lao-Tse
