EpigraphsThe Greek: What is the Truth?
The Chinese: Where is the Way?
Angus Graham(1919-91)Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till Earth and Sky stand presently, at God’s great Judgment Seat.
Rudyard Kipling(1865-1936)He who knows himself and others will also recognize that East and West cannot be separated.
Wolfgang Goethe(1749-1832)Those who would have right without its correlative, wrong;or good government without its correlative, misrule, they do not apprehend the great principles of the universe nor the condition to which all creation is subject. One might as well talk of the existence of heaven without that of earth, or of the negative principle without the positive, which is clearly absurd.
