Mastery Through Adaptation

Softness triumphs over hardness, feebleness over strength.  What is more malleable is always superior over that which is immoveable.  This is the principle of controlling things by going along with them, of mastery through adaptation.

-- Lao Tzu, as quoted in "Zen In The Martial Arts" (1979) by Joe Hyams, p. 67
