strength in yielding

“Water is fluid, soft, and yielding. But water will wear away rock, which is rigid and cannot yield.  As a rule, whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. This is another paradox:  what is soft is strong.” –Lao-Tzu (600 B.C.)

Rivers demand this to be true.
