Between Heaven and Earth

Heaven and Earth are heartless
treating creatures like straw dogs
heartless is the sage
treating people like straw dogs
between Heaven and Earth
how like a bellows
empty but inexhaustible
each movement produces more
talking only wastes it
better to keep it inside

Lao-tzu
from the Taoteching, #5
