The Most Flexible Thing In The World

Nothing in the world is more flexible

and yielding than water.

Yet when it attacks the firm and strong,

none can withstand it,

because they have no way to change it.

So the flexible overcome the adamant,

the yielding overcome the forceful.

Everyone knows this,

but no one can do it.

This is why sages say

those who can take on the disgrace of nations

are leaders of lands;

those who can take on the misfortune of nations

are rulers of the world.

True sayings seem paradoxical.

 

 

Quaerite Et Invenietis “Seek and you will find”

 

“There is nothing hidden that will not be revealed”

 

 

May God bless and protect you and…

May you always be

Healthy, Happy

Safe and Comfortable
