"We put thirty spokes to make a wheel;
But it is on the hole in the center that the use of the cart hinges.
We make a vessel from a lump of clay;

But it is the empty space within the vessel that makes it useful.
We make doors and windows for a room;

But it is the empty spaces that make the room livable.
Thus, while existence has advantages;

It is the emptiness that makes it useful."

- Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu;
