Nothing in the world is as soft and yielding as water,
Yet nothing can better overcome the hard and strong,
For they can neither control nor do away with it.
The soft overcomes the hard,
The yielding overcomes the strong;
Every person knows this,
But no one can practice it...
--Tao Te Ching
How many applications does this have to disability? To start with, civil disobedience, pain, the stereotype that we must overcome, the idea that strength is in itself a virtue.
