Nothing in the World

"Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.

The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.

True words seem paradoxical." - Lao Tzu

"If some people think you to be an important personage, distrust yourself." - Epictetus
