Ring the bells that still can ring
forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything
that is how the light gets in.

– Leonard Cohen

    It reminded me of reading in the Tao Te Ching :

    Thirty spokes share the wheel’s hub;
    It is the center hole that makes it useful.
    Shape clay into a vessel;
    It is the space within that makes it useful.
    Cut doors and windows for a room;
    It is the holes which make it useful.
    Therefore benefit comes from what is there;
    Usefulness from what is not there.
