Absence

Spokes on the Water

 

Thirty spokes gathered at each hub:

absence makes the cart work.

A storage jar fashioned out of clay:

Absence makes the jar work

Doors and windows cut in a house:

Absence makes the house work

Presence gives things their value,

but absence makes them work.

-Lao Tzu
