SOFT AND FLOWING WILL PREVAIL

By :Emma Leafe 0 comments
SOFT AND FLOWING WILL PREVAIL

newborn – we are tender and weak
in death – we are rigid and stiff

living plants are supple and yielding
dead branches are dry and brittle

so the hard and unyielding belong to death
and the soft and pliant belong to life

an inflexible army does not triumph
an unbending tree breaks in the wind

thus the rigid and inflexible will surely fail
while the soft and flowing will prevail

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – chapter 76
