Thought for the Day


“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding.But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.As a rule,whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox: what is soft is strong.”
Lao-Tzu.

Try this principle next time you’re in an argument with someone.Being fluid, soft and yielding means being flexible, and the more flexible you are, the better your chances of coming up with something constructive. If you lock into a certain position, you put yourself in an extremely limited position. Don’t be the rock, be the water!
