A Quote by Chuang Chou, a.k.a. Chuang Tzu, Chuang Tse Chuang on chance, silence, words, and taoism

To name Tao is to name nothing. Tao is not the name of (something created). "Cause" and "chance" have no bearing on the Tao. Tao is a name that indicates without defining. Tao is beyond words and beyond things. It is not expressed either in word or in silence. Where there is no longer word or silence Tao is apprehended.
