First Known When Lost: “The Further One Travels The Less One Knows”
No need to leave your door to know the whole world;
No need to peer through your windows to know the Way of Heaven.
The farther you go, the less you know.
Therefore the Sage knows without going,
Names without seeing,
And completes without doing a thing.
Lao Tzu (translated by Robert Henricks), Tao Te Ching, Chapter 47.
