I just love ancient Chinese proverbs. So often, they resonate within me having struck a chord a truth. Proverbs offer little bits of wisdom that don’t always make sense the first time you hear them but as you experience life, they ring even more true.
Ancient Chinese Proverbs:

Deep doubts, deep wisdom, small doubts, little wisdom.
He who strikes the first blow admits he’s lost the argument.
