The World is a Closed Door

"The world is the closed door. It is a barrier. At the same time, it
is the only way through."
- Simone Weil

"The path into the light seems dark,
the path forward seems to go back,
the direct path seems long,
true power seems weak,
true purity seems tarnished,
true steadfastness seems changeable,
true clarity seems obscure,
the greatest art seems unsophisticated,
the greatest love seems indifferent,
the greatest wisdom seems childish.
The Tao is nowhere to be found,
Yet it nourishes and completes all things." - Lao Tzu
