A journey of a thousand li starts beneath one’s feet (Chinese: 千里之行,始于足下; pinyin: Qiān lĭ zhī xíng, shĭ yú zú xià; literally: "A journey of a thousand li starts beneath one’s feet") is a famous Chinese phrase.

It is often translated into English as 'A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step'. The quotation is from Chapter 64 of the Tao Te Ching ascribed to Laozi.
