Flexibility Quotes

"Men are born soft and supple; dead, they are stiff and hard. Plants are born tender and pliant; dead, they are brittle and dry. Thus whoever is stiff and inflexible is a disciple of death. Whoever is soft and yielding is a disciple of life. The hard and stiff will be broken. The soft and supple will prevail."

"Nothing in the world is more flexible and yielding than water. Yet when it attacks the firm and the strong, none can withstand it, because they have no way to change it. So the flexible overcome the adamant, the yielding overcome the forceful. Everyone knows this, but no one can do it."

"I am a man of fixed and unbending principles, the first of which is to be flexible at all times.”

Everett Dirksen

"Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”

Tom Robbins

humor.html "It's all about being flexible, and avoiding choices whenever possible. Choices suck, they are inherently limiting.”

Craig Armstrong
