Tao Te Ching: 11

Tiger

Thirty spokes converge

In a single hub

A wheel’s use

Comes from its emptiness

A vessel is made from moulded clay

A vessel’s use

Comes from it emptiness

Cut out doors and windows

To make a room

A room’s use

Comes from its emptiness

A thing’s existence

Makes it valuable

But a thing’s emptiness

Makes it useful
