Above the Clouds

There is something blurred and indistinct, Antedating heaven and earth. How indistinct! How blurred! Yet within it are forms. How dim! How confused! Quiet, though ever functioning. It does nothing, yet through it all things are done. To its accomplishment it lays no credit. It loves and nourishes all things, but does not lord it over them. I do not know its name, I call it the Tao.

-Lao Tzu.
