Human beings are born soft and supple
At their death they are stiff and hard
Grasses and trees are born tender and pliant
At their death they are withered and dry
Therefore the stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death
The gentle and yielding
is a disciple of life.
An army that is inflexible never wins a battle.
A tree that is unbending easily snaps.
The hard and rigid will be broken.
The supple and yielding will prevail.
Tao Te Ching (as quoted in a Shell Chemical as in "Modern Plastics", July 1982)
