In the book, Introduction to Linear Algebra, Gilbert Strang says that every time we see a space of vectors, the zero vector will be included in it.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I reckon that this is only the case if the plane passes through the origin. Else wise, how can a space contain a zero vector if it does not pass through the origin?
