      A man is born gentle and weak;
      at his death he is hard and stiff.
All things, including the grass and trees,
         are soft and pliable in life;
           dry and brittle in death.

 Stiffness is thus a companion of death;
        flexibility a companion of life.
          An army that cannot yield
                 will be defeated.
           A tree that cannot bend
             will crack in the wind.

       The hard and stiff will be broken
         the soft and supple will prevail.

-Tao Te Ching, Verse 76
as channeled by Wayne Dyer
