What was present before
The creation of all things?
Still, silent, unchanging;
It was the Mother of all things.

I don’t know its name, So I will call it Tao. Tao means great. Great means far. Far means far away. Far away means returning.

The sage can follow This pattern inside herself, And thus return to the Tao.
