This knowledge

“Тhe gentle overcomes the rigid.
The slow overcomes the fast.
The weak overcomes the strong.”…
Everyone knows that the yielding overcomes the stiff,
and the soft overcomes the hard.
Yet no one applies this knowledge.”

Lao Tzu

    might be said, a day for nothing much,
    yet a day when nothing means more than everything.

    also a day when that attractive wiggling worm upon a hook said throw caution aside, see what was, what is, a “mistake”. surprises can be just like that, said the fish.
