the clever chinese

"Unless we change direction, we are likely to end up where we are going "- chinese proverb. China changed direction (to economic growth).. a few times...slowly. But sucessfully. It has now set a new direction (harmonius development and environmental sustainability). How long will it take to move the ship around? And the same goes for the Developed World, which is even slower at turning the ship.. maybe the ship has got used to going in its old direction!

and another relevant quote:
"He who knows that enough is enough will always have enough" - Lao Tzu

I love that Lao Tzu quote. I've shamelessly stolen it (and the two you posted on nomadone) for my blog. :-) Sharing is caring. I'll be visiting your blog again, no doubt!
