How To Treat Others
"Tse-kung asked, 'Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life?' Confucius replied, 'It is the word 'shu' -- reciprocity. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.'" Doctrine of the Mean 13.3 One day, I was on my way to a primary school that I taught at a few times a week. I stopped at a street vendor's cart to buy the famous 'bing', or, as some call it, 'the Chinese hotdog.' I went that way to the school sever ...

I've encountered a lot of the more than 200 students who were sent here by the Chinese government to learn how to fly airplanes, in this store. They were in there shopping the other night. I said, " ...

I know mine. It's very easy. It is to have lived my entire life and to have not gained the wisdom that I know I need and truly desire. Solomon could have had anything that he wanted. Not just from others. His father was the king. He was the most beloved son of David, the most famous ruler of Israel. He could have asked for riches, which later, he did get. But that's not what he sought. He asked for wisdom. He didn't seek it from man. He sought it from the divine mind of God. W ...

    Ture but most Chinese return to China Plus if your have not mastered English a degree from Harvard with a 75% average means nothing. Now if you end up in the top 10% of your class then by all means it is better. But really how many Chinese end up in the top 10% in any USA university? Maybe 1 out of 10,000.If you do not want to return to China then yes Harvard Degree is better.
