    And these two remarks hold good with respect to learning. He who, on the contrary, finds fault with others, injures himself as if with a sword or spear, for it hinders the cultivating of his moral character. Managers and agents trust our agency to handle everything to the industry standard as we have for almost 25 years. It is quite beyond my power to do justice to its beauties.

If any of these emotions, therefore, were given with a patronizing air on the one side and received with a sense of gratitude on the other, then blood relations would be strangers, and their exchange of love and regard would be like business transactions. This compilation of wisdom based on the teachings Confucianism, Daoism and Buddhismthe three major religion that flourish at the time of China.
