Wisdom of the Week
100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom

"Light promising makes one lose one's credibility." - Lao Zi Says.

Actions speak louder than words, and unfulfilled promises will quickly cause others to feel that our words are worthless. It is easy to hastily commit to taking on a task or project.
