Tao Te Ching Chapter 4

Tao is a hollow vessel,

And its use is inexhaustible!


Like the fountain head of all things,

Its sharp edges rounded off,

Its tangles untied,

Its light tempered,

Its turmoil submerged,

Yet dark like deep water it seems to remain.

I do not know whose Son it it,

An image of what existed before God.
