Chapter forty-seven: Looking far

You don't have to go our the door
to know what goes on in the world.
You don't have to look out the window
to see the way of heaven.
The farther you go,
the less you know.

So the wise soul
doesn't go, but knows;
doesn't look, but sees;
doesn't do. but gets it done.

Lao Tsu,  Tao te Ching.
Interpreted by Ursula Le Guin
