More on the "UnCarved Block":

If you were to meet someone who understands great plainness, who subscribes to nonaction and [復朴] returns to the simplicity of the unhewn log, who embodies his nature and embraces his spirit, so as to wander through the common world, you would really be surprised!" (Zhuangzi - 12, tr. Mair 1994:112-113)
