For it is easier, to ruin than to build;
And to bring death than to bring to birth;
And to kill than to create;
And the bud does not resist at all.
That is in fact because it is not made for resistance, it is not commissioned to resist.
It is the trunk and the branch and that governing root which are made for resistance, which are commissioned to resist.
And it is the rough bark which is made for roughness and which is commissioned to be rough.
But the tender bud is only made for being born and is only commissioned to bring to birth.

(And to make things last).

(And to make itself loved).
