τὸ μηδὲν εἰς οὐδὲν ῥέπει → nothing comes to nothing

Compare:

KING LEAR (to CORDELIA)
Now, our joy,
Although the last, not least; to whose young love
The vines of France and milk of Burgundy
Strive to be interess’d; what can you say to draw
A third more opulent than your sisters? Speak.
CORDELIA Nothing, my lord.
KING LEAR Nothing!
CORDELIA Nothing.
KING LEAR Nothing will come of nothing: speak again.
