Chinese Wisdom of the Week

"It is as impossible to find a perfect man as it is to find 100 percent pure gold." - From 100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom.

This proverb cautions us that it is foolish to demand perfection. What we should do is concentrate on developing our merits and overcoming our shortcomings.

That’s all the news for this edition of our newsletter. We look forward to bringing you an ever-growing selection of products as we get ready to move into our spacious new surroundings.
