Yin and Yang are popular concepts in Chinese philosophy. They are present in all aspects of life. Yin yields to Yang and Yang yields to Yin in repeating cycles. There is always some Yin in Yang and always some Yang within Yin. Yin and Yang are often best explained with examples.

Darkness is Yin in nature while light is Yang in nature. During the daytime light (Yang) dominates. However, even at high noon, there are still small amounts of darkness (Yin) present; mainly the shadows are present. As the daylight wanes and the night approaches, the light (Yang) gives way to the darkness (Yin). By midnight darkness dominates. However, even at midnight, there are still small amounts of light (Yang) present; mainly the stars and moon light. As the darkness wanes and the day approaches, the darkness (Yin) gives way to the light. The cycle repeats.

The most masculine man (Yang) still has a touch of femininity (Yin) while the most feminine woman (Yin) still has a touch of masculinity (Yang). The most jagged mountain peak (Yang) still has a touch of flat spot (Yin) while the smoothest plain (Yin) still has a touch of jaggedness (Yang). The most rabbid dog (Yang) will still have a bit of gentleness (Yin) while the most gentle dog (Yin) will still scratch or bite once in a blue moon (Yang). Etc, etc.
