Disciple of Life

“Human 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  ( 570 – 490 BC )

Love All.
