Quotes about nothing

A cynic is a man who knows the price
of everything but the value of nothing.

Oscar Wilde


I could not riding out alone about my business,
but smile out to god in praises,
in assurance of victory because god would,
by things that are not, bring to naught things that are.

Oliver Cromwell, before the Battle of Naseby, 1645.


Thirty spokes
meet in the hub.
Where the wheel isn't
is where it's useful.
Hollowed out,
clay makes a pot.
Where the pot's not
is where it's useful.
Cut doors and windows
to make a room.
Where the room isn't,
there's room for you.

So the profit in what is
is in the use of what isn't.

Lao Tzu, 6th century BCE


Reports that say that something hasn't happened are always interesting to me,
because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know.
We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know.
But there are also unknown unknowns -- the ones we don't know we don't know.

Donald Rumsfeld
