Daoism -> Dao De Jing -> 43

(The universal use (of the action in weakness of the Dao))
天下The softest thing in the world
天下 dashes against and overcomes the hardest;
that which has no (substantial) existence enters where there is no crevice.
I know hereby what advantage belongs to doing nothing (with a purpose).
天下There are few in the world who attain to the teaching without words, and the advantage arising from non-action.
