quote: Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way around or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves. Empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend. --Bruce Lee


In ancient China, people paid more attention to etiquette so I can see many lively stories about family reunions in various ancient literature, such as A Dream of Red Mansions.

In ancient times, people paid more attention to the etiquette between families, so I can see many lively stories about family reunions and friends reunions in various ancient paintings and ancient literature. There are also many ancient scholars who pointed out that filial piety and sincerity towards friends are the most important things a person should have. In modern society, although technology is more advanced and the means of communication are more convenient, the relationship between relatives and friends is not as close as in ancient times. In many Chinese families, only one pair of parents and children live together, far from the families of the ancients.
