"Water is a paradox. Though resistant to pressure, it can change its state dramatically, forming steam or ice. As Lao Tse so eloquently shows in the Tao Te Ching, water always seeks the lowest level, and enters the most despised places, yet gives life to the Ten Thousand Things. Through yielding, water can wear down a stone or find a way in where tools could not."
