"What is not yet manifested is easy to take into account.
What is still small can be easily dispersed.
We must influence what does not yet exist.
You have to order what is not yet disorganized.
A tree whose thickness is a stroke is born from a thin stem like a hair.
A nine-story tower will rise from a mound of earth.
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step."
Lao Tzi. Dao De Jing. 6th Century BC.
