“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
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft
is a disciple of life.
The hard and stiff will be broken.
The soft and supple will prevail.”
Lao Tzu ( 570 – 490 BC )
