Are you studying Chinese? Do you want to know what the
Chinese think is good and what is wicked? Do you want to know why the Chinese
laugh and why they cry? To really get to the answers, you may have to talk to
thousands of people and read tons of books, which is improbable. Well,
there may be an easier way to do this: by going back some 2000 years to the
times and thoughts of ancient Chinese philosophers.
Chinese Wisdom is a series of Chinese cultural and
language books, starting with Confucius, Laozi, Zhuangzi, thinkers and teachers
who have helped generations of Chinese in their search for truth, knowledge and
path to a meaningful life. The Chinese Wisdom series provides a quick
yet insightful look into their thought, and at the same time offers intermediate
and advanced language lessons replete with useful sentence patterns, idioms and
vocabulary, as well as in the form of stories and fables.
You canít measure an ocean with a bucket, but you can taste
