    Brilliant perspective

    From social media, we get to receive lots of stories from our friends. Mostly trivial and sometimes nonsensical. But once in awhile, we get a gem. I got a nice story early in the year. I did check in case it may be another made-up story. I found it mentioned again in the China Daily forum. I am still unsure if that important person actually commented in such eloquence. Nonetheless, it gave me a perspective I had never seen in an apparently trivial subject like the zodiac.

    Read the story years ago. The story in the original language is more telling.

    周恩来 (Zhou EnLai) was the protégé of Mau Zedong. Looking at what they did to the millions of people there during the cultural revolution, I doubt such story is real as wisdom unlikely come from such cold-blooded people..

    Likely is the frictional story fabricated by his supporters to paint a nice picture about their ex-leader.

    Regardless, I like the story and it is inspiring.
