The soft and weak will overcome – Tao Te Ching

Stiff and unbending is the principle of death.

Gentle and yielding is the principle of life.

 Thus an Army without flexibility never wins a battle.

A tree that is unbending is easily broken.

The hard and strong will fall.

The soft and weak will overcome.

Tao Te Ching (76)
