Water never waits. It changes shape and flows around things, finding secret paths that no one else has thought of: a hole in the roof or a small hole in the bottom of a box. Without a doubt it is the most versatile of the five elements, It can wash away the earth, put out the fire, rust a piece of metal and consume it. Even wood, which is its natural complement, cannot survive unless it is nourished by water.
