'Soft and Hard'

                                   'Soft and Hard'    

When people are born they are soft and supple
 when they perish they are hard and stiff.

when plants shoot forth they are soft and tender
 when they die they are withered and dry

Thus it is said the hard and strong are followers of death,
 The soft and weak are followers of life.

 when an army becomes strong it suffers defeat
 when a plant becomes hard it snaps

 The hard and strong dwell below .........

 The soft and weak dwell above.

                                                                From Tao : 76.1 to 5
