Soft Overcomes Hard

Nothing in the world is softer or more yielding
than water.
But, for wearing down the hard and the strong,
there is nothing like it.
That yielding overcomes the strong
and softness overcomes the hard
is something that is known by all,
but is practiced by few.

An ancient developed one said:
“He who can take the troubles
of the people of the world
is qualified to rule the world.
He who can tend to calamities for the sake of all beings
is the right person to be the sovereign of the world.”
Indeed, truth seems paradoxical!

Lao Tzu,
Tao Teh Ching 78
