This is the poem that inspires a comment I frequently make: Nothing IS Everything.
Know you what it is to be a child?…it is to believe in loveliness, to believe in belief; it is to be so little that the elves can reach to whisper in our ear; it is to turn pumpkins into coaches, and mice into horses, lowness into loftiness, and nothing into everything, for each child has its fairy godmother in its soul.
I wrote a children’s book titled: Nothing Doings: There’s Nothing to It!, published in 1985.
With a few updates it reads as follows:
I am Nothing.
There’s Nothing like being Nothing.
There’s Nothing to it.
Nothing’s wrong with being Nothing.
There’s Nothing quite so popular as being Nothing ‘cause …
Everyone wants something for Nothing.
You often hear folks say, “Thanks for Nothing,”
And answer, “Think Nothing of it.”
With me, it’s Nothing ventured, Nothing gained.
I don’t think of myself as a mere Nothing…
I’m ALL or Nothing
‘cause I’ve got plenty of Nothing,
And Nothing’s plenty for me.
Nothing’s more fun than Anything.
You ain’t seen Nothing yet.
Nothing is possible.
Nothing is everywhere. There’s either
Nothing to wear…
Nothing to eat…
Nothing to do
Nothing succeeds like success
You’re wise to say “NOTHING!”
…Nothing but the truth.
I figure I’m pretty entertaining…
Because I often hear there’s Nothing to laugh about.
When I’m in an otherwise boring show, there’s Nothing to cheer about,
Even when it’s awful, Nothing would be better.
When I hide, there’s Nothing to seek.
When I surprise you, there’s Nothing more intriguing.
One thing for sure about me: Nothing is certain.
I’m original because Nothing is new under the sun.
There’s Nothing like me.
When people use me in a wrong way, the Nothing they put into a project…
Leads to Nothing coming out of it.
I’m tops when it comes to productivity because…
Nothing can be created from Nothing,
And Nothing in Particular
Turns Nothing into Everything
