A CHINESE SAYING TO WESTERNERS
Chinese have many sayings, but they all applied to Chinese. It's high time we should have some sayings that apply to the Westerners, who have injected into our lives recently, often uninvited.
The first Chinese saying should be:
"If you decide to become a good person, but cannot do it on your own, dont."
In another words:
"Go ahead, stay bad and do evil, but dont feel righteous about it."
This is, in fact, the main difference between the Chinese and the Westerners. Chinese became good five thousands years ago on their own. Ever since, good have triumphed over bad in China.
The West did just the opposite. They became good for a price -- God's blessing. Since then, hell broke loose.
