Wisdom of the Week
Quotations from Confucius

"I wish for the old to live in peace and comfort, friends to trust each other, and the young to be taken good care of." - Quotations from Confucius


As events in Louisiana and Mississippi have unfolded over the past few weeks, it is amazing to see the heartfelt response of Americans and others across the world. People have opened their wallets and their homes to help Katrina's survivors. India, Sri Lanka, and China, countries impacted by their own natural disasters this year, offered generous donations to support relief efforts. We certainly all share Confucius' wishes. How heartening it is to watch ordinary people come together to try to make it happen. We wish you and your family the best as nature's evolution moves us into a new season.
