Without a few knots, we'd fall apart:
Thou shalt not lie nor break my heart.
The ties that bind, too easily loosed,
Lead us only to be seduced
By any whim, the road untried;
It's best we keep our knots well tied.

Every 'not' is not necessarily a bad thing. No, it's knot!
(I wrote this quickly after seeing a FaceBook post this morning that basically had the opposite message. And I consider both valid.)
