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 profit comes from what is there.
Usefulness from what is not there.

Chapter 11,
Tao te Ching
Lao Tsu (Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English translation)
