Wisdom of the Week
100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom

"A huge tree which fills one's arms grows from a small heap of earth" - Lao Zi Says


All things in life start from modest beginnings. The highest tree, the tallest mountain, each began life very differently from where they stand now. We, too, start life humbly and must show resolve and determination to achieve greatness. We hope that your own life will have roots as deep and branches as high as the tallest tree.
