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....
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)
