Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing that makes water,
and nobody knows what that is.

–D. H. Lawrence

The Warrior of the Light sometimes behaves like water,
flowing around the obstacles he encounters.

Occasionally, resistance might mean destruction, and so
he adapts to the circumstances.

He accepts, without complaint, that the stones in his path
hinder his way through the mountains.

Therein lies the strength of water: It cannot be touched
by a hammer or ripped to shreds by a knife.

The strongest sword in the world cannot scar its surface.

The river adapts itself to whatever route proves possible,
but the river never forgets its one objective: the sea.

So fragile at its source, it gradually gathers the strength of
the other rivers it encounters.

And, after a certain point, its power is absolute.

–Paulo Coelho
Warrior of Light
