“Without going out-of-doors,

one may know all under heaven;

Without peering through windows, 

one may know the Way of heaven.

The farther one goes,

The less one knows.

 

For this reason,

The sage knows without journeying

understands without looking,

accomplishes without acting.”

From the Tao Te Ching — Lao Tzu — Translated by Victor H. Mair
