“Men are born soft and supple; dead they are stiff and hard.  Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry.  Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death.  Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life.  The hard and stiff will be broken.  The soft and supple will prevail.”

― Lao Tzu
