Thought for the Week – Hardness and strength

by in Thought for the week

When a person is born,
they are soft and pliable.
When they die they are
strong and hard.
When a tree grows
it is soft and pliable
but when it is hard and dry
it dies.
Hardness and strength are
companions of death.
Flexibility and softness are the
embodiment of life.
That which has become
hard shall not triumph.
From the film, ‘The Stalker’ by Tarkovsky.
