„There is a thing inherent and natural,

Which existed before heaven and earth.

Motionless and fathomless,

It stands alone and never changes;

It pervades everywhere and never becomes exhausted.

It may be regarded as the Mother of the Universe.

I do not know its name.

If I am forced to give it a name,

I call it Tao, and I name it as supreme.“

— Laozi, book Tao Te Ching
