What is of all things most yeilding

  Can overcome that which is most hard.

  Being sustanceless, it can enter in

  even where there is no crevice.

  That is how I know the value

  of action which is actionless.

  But that there can be teaching without words,

  Value in action which is actionless

  Few indeed can understand.

Lao Tzu
                                                                    5th Century B.C.
