Saturday Quote

“Years later, while reading Chinese philosophy, I would stumble across the Taoist saying that ‘when two great forces collide, the victory will go to the one that knows how to yield.’ The idea is that a fluid substance, like water, may seem to give in to a rigid substance, like stone—but in the end, it is the water that changes the shape of the stone, and not the other way around. “

Expecting Adam by Martha Beck
