Walking the Tao – Chapter 76

Tenderness and gentleness are natural qualities in everyone; but as we grow older we learn to be self-protective and afraid. This stiffens our spirits and hardens our bodies. Dead things are rigid, stiff and brittle things will break, but live things are soft and supple. Those who remain tender and gentle throughout their life are the truly blessed.
