Upon pausing and observing the resilience and beauty
of a simple branch or of a delicate flower
nature shows us how compliant, obsequious and lithe it is.
Most branches bend readily without breaking,
nor do they become deformed or ugly.
Learn the wisdom of compromise, for it is better to bend a little than to break. Jane Wells

Nature has a funny way of breaking what does not bend.
