Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching on Violence

The very softest thing of all
can ride like a galloping horse through the hardest of things.

Like water, like water pe”netrating rock.
And so the invisible enters in.

That is why I know it is wise to act by doing nothing.
And how few, how very few understand this.

People teach in the world what I know to be true:
if you live violently, that is how you will die.”

Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching
