A Swiss Champion for the Art of a Rapidly Changing China

New York Times, August 15, 2005
BERN, Switzerland - Some Western museumgoers might be forgiven for picturing China as a society of glacially slow change, given the abundance of shows that explore the gradual flowering of this or that ancient dynasty.

Chinese Wisdom of the Week

"A narrow mountain path will be broadened into a road if trodden frequently, but it will be overgrown with grass if not used for a long period of time." - Quotations from Mencius

This proverb tells us that we must continually use our education and our knowledge. In sharing and discussing our experiences and wisdom, we will open ourselves to new worlds and new ways of thinking. However, if we choose to be complacent and avoid seeking out opportunities to enrich ourselves, we will become entangled and shut off from the rest of the world. The start of school is a reminder to us all to continually reach out and grow so that we can forge a path of happiness for ourselves.

Your Friends,

The ChinaSprout Team
