Lao Tzu (Chinese philosopher and Daoist theologian, lived around the 6th and 5th century BCE)
“There is a thing confusedly formed,
Born before heaven and earth.
Silent and void
It stands alone and does not change,
Goes round and does not weary.”
- From Lao Tzu’s Tao Te Ching (Book One, XXV), translated by D. C. Lau (Penguin Classics, 1963).
