What is the best way to deal with force?
As we prize peace and quiet above victory, there is a simple and preferred
method: run away.
Perceive the way of nature and no force of man can harm you.
Do not meet a wave head on, avoid it.
You don't have to stop force, it is easier to redirect it.
Learn more ways to preserve, rather than destroy.
Mastering others requires force;
Mastering the self requires enlightenment
Force is unnecessary, Resistance is futile.
