Wisdom of the Week
100 Pearls of Chinese Wisdom

"A gentleman always keeps even-tempered without being arrogant while a petty man is arrogant without being even-tempered." - Confucius Says


Patience with our fellow man is a virtue in our fast-paced society. We should not forget to stop and consider how our words impact others. Are we patient and nurturing or quick to judge? We especially need to be mindful as we deal with our children. A few hastily spoken, ill-tempered words can have a lasting impact. We hope that you always receive warm words that come from the heart.
