Fill your bowl to the brim and it will spill. Keep sharpening your knife and it will blunt.
We join spokes together in a wheel, but it is the center hole that makes the wagon move. We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want. We hammer wood for a house, but it is the inner space that makes it livable. We work with being, but non-being is what we use.
If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. If you are not afraid of dying, there is nothing you cannot achieve.
He who does not trust enough, Will not be trusted.
He who knows, does not speak. He who speaks, does not know.
Silence is a source of great strength.
