Liquid state of mind

You must be shapeless, formless, like water. When you pour water in a cup, it becomes the cup. When you pour water in a bottle, it becomes the bottle. When you pour water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water can drip and it can crash. Become like water, my friend. — Bruce Lee

I think we should be like milk. Whatever qualities of water the aforementioned legend highlighted in the above quote, milk possesses them too. Unlike water, milk is sensitive. Water is colourless while milk is mostly white and nourishes both racists as well non-racists. Didn't we have milk first before water? (Scientifically speaking, breastmilk has about 90% water but let's stick with the argument!) Lastly, water can hide in milk but can the latter do that in the former? Can you hide someone in you or vice versa?

Milk turns sour. But milk helps make yogurt and cheese too.
Water is preferable because it seldom leaves a trace behind. A blow dryer, a bit of sunlight, some wind can wipe away all signs of mischief created by water.
