A witty saying proves nothing. ~ Voltaire #quote


Our suffering was not caused by our parents or grandparents. It was merely passed down. We are social animals. We grow through modelling. We teach what we have learned.

And in Chan we vow that suffering will stop with us. We will not pass it down. ~ Guo Jun #quote
