Tao Te Ching – Verse 6
The Tao is called the Great Mother:
empty yet inexhaustible,
it gives birth to infinite worlds.
It is always present within you.
You can use it any way you want.
(translation by Stephen Mitchell, 1995)
The valley spirit, undying
Is called the Mystic Female
The gate of the Mystic Female
Is called the root of Heaven and Earth
It flows continuously, barely perceptible
Utilize it; it is never exhausted
(translation by Derek Lin, 2006)
Life can be said to be the Nothing.
The Nothing can be said to be Zero.
Those who speak too much can say, “It is like a goddess.”
Those who know, always know it is beautiful yet modest in its Infinity.
(translation by Jeremy M. Miller, 2013)
