Tao Te Ching, Chapter 47 - Staying Inside

Without going outside, you may know the whole world.
Without looking through the window, you may see the ways of heaven.
The farther you go, the less you know.

Thus the sage knows without traveling;
He sees without looking;
He works without doing.

Steinbeck knew that travelers
take their homes with them
wherever they go.
Cognitive psychologists know
that we tend to see
only what is familiar.
So the point of traveling
is lost on many travelers
and the point of viewing
is lost on most viewers.Collapse ).
