Chinese Wisdom of the Week

 "A gentleman concentrates on the following nine things: seeing clearly when he uses his eyes; hearing accurately when he uses his ears; looking mild when it comes to facial expression; appearing sedate when it comes to demeanor; being sincere when he speaks; being conscientious when it comes to his office responsibility; seeking advice when he is in the face of difficulty; foreseeing the consequences when he gets angry; asking himself whether it is right when he wants to gain something."  from Quotations from Confucius.


This saying tells us to always be vigilant in our words and actions. By taking the time to visualize, listen, and thoroughly think things through, we are best able to make wise decisions in our daily lives.


That's it for this week. Enjoy the rest of your summer days

Your Friends,

The ChinaSprout Team
