"Man when living is soft and tender; when dead he is hard and tough.
All animals and plants when living are tender and fragile; when dead they become withered and dry. Therefore it is said: the hard and the tough are parts of death, the soft and the tender are parts of life.
This is the reason why soldiers when they are too tough cannot carry the day; the tree when it is too tough will break.
The position of the strong and great is low, and the position of the weak and tender is high."
- Translated by Ch'u Ta-Kao, 1904, Chapter 76
