Someone on Facebook shared this quote attributed to Bruce Lee…
Be like water …Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.
I liked the sentiment, which is very Taoist. But I added in a comment something that I think is also important:
You put coffee in a coffeemaker, it becomes coffee!
And that reminded me of this image which has also been making the rounds on Facebook:
