The Tao covers the ten thousand things like flood waters.
It flows in all directions.
The ten thousand things depend on it.
The Tao denies none of them.
Laozi

This is a currently incomplete list of ten thousand subjects for which Wikipedia should ultimately have high-quality articles. It expands on Wikipedia:Vital articles, which lists one thousand articles. This list is in the process of being refined and prioritized on the basis of topic-by-topic discussion and voting. Changes can be proposed on the talk page. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Because of its size, Vital Articles/Expanded has been split into eleven sublists. If you spot a duplicate listing, please remove one of them; if you aren't sure in which section a topic belongs, please initiate a discussion on the talk page.

As of January 26, 2016, this list includes 9,803 individual articles, based on the manually entered totals for each of the sublists:
