THIS EVERYONE KNOWS

 

In this world there is nothing softer or thinner than water.

But to compel the hard and unyielding, it has no equal.

That the weak overcomes the strong,

that the hard gives way to the gentle –

this everyone knows,

yet on one acts accordingly.

  1. Thanks for that reminder, Bruce. Because it takes persistent, ongoing action over several generations, it’s so easy for us to give up the struggle and become stagnant water. Stay well 🙂
