Water is the softest thing,
yet it can penetrate
mountains and earth.
This shows clearly
the principle of softness
overcoming hardness.

    Hi Jen,
    Lovely quote.
    "Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the bitterness stel your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place."

Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
