I was inspired by children's author and illustrator Grace Lin, of the gracelinblog, to look up Chinese Proverbs. Ms. Lin posts a Chinese proverb on her blog every Friday.
"By nature all men are alike, but by education very different."
"Don't open a shop unless you like to smile."
"Be not afraid of growing slowly, be only afraid of standing still."
"A book holds a house of gold."
"Deep doubts, deep wisdom; small doubts, little wisdom."
"A bird does not sing because it has an answer. It sings because it has a song."
