Chinese Wisdom of the Week

"Young people have great potential for achievements. Who can say that they will not be our equals in the future? - from "Quotations From Confucius"


The summer days are long but are not always so lazy. It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget the important things. We should remember to take time out of our busy schedules to spend with our children and encourage their potential for great achievements.
