“Green plants are tender and filled with sap.

At their death they are withered and dry.

A tree that is unbending is easily broken.

By: Lao Tzu

(Page 134)



Hermit Poet’s Comments: Anger and being full of hate is not the way. Why raise the blood pressure? Walk away from confrontations because most of the time they are a waste of time. Do not become that old bitter person who does not give an inch and is on a mission to make miserable everyone’s life they come in contact with. Be happy and have fun and give instead of take and life will move along smoothly.
