Yielding Overcomes that which is Immovable

Water is the softest and
Most yielding substance.
Thus, it can dissolve the hard and immovable.

The soft dissolves the hard,
That which yields can overcome
That which is immovable.
In this, water has no equal.

But who practices this in life?
The sage takes the low spots and
Thieves don’t trouble him.
He lives a simple life and
His years are beyond measure.
