Adaption from Tao Te Ching

Men are born soft and supple;
dead, they are stiff and bard.
Plants are born tender and pliant;
dead, they are brittle and dry.
 
Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible
is a disciple of death.
Whoever is soft and yielding
is a disciple of life…
 
(from chapter 76)

  1. 查了一下,原文如下:
     
            人之生也柔弱,其死也坚强。  草木之生也柔脆,其死也枯槁。  故坚强者死之徒,柔弱者生之徒。  是以兵强则灭,木强则折。  强大处下,柔弱处上。
