Chinese Wisdom of the Week

 “When two tigers fight, one is sure to lose.”  - from "100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom"


This proverb reminds us that, in any confrontation between two parties, one side will always ends up the loser.  Thus, it is best to try to avoid conflict as much as possible  so that no one loses face (or anything else)! While you are bound to win sometimes, you are equally bound to lose. It is best to simply find a common ground.


That’s it for this week.  Stay cool, enjoy the rest of summer!


Your Friends,

The ChinaSprout Team
