It is only in the country that we can get to know a person or a book.
It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life.
P. D. James
Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.
Let a hundred flowers bloom, let a hundred schools of thought contend.
Let the gentle bush dig its root deep and spread upward to split the boulder.
