“The green reed which bends in the wind is stronger than the mighty oak which breaks in a storm.”
-Attributed to Confucius
And yet, have you ever experienced the wonder of a tree that stands like a sentinel, defining everything around it, just by its presence?

Yet things change, especially when forces beyond our control assert themselves.
Without stability, there is no greatness.
Without flexibility, there is no surviving.
How can we have both?
