All pandas in the world are technically on loan from China. When a baby Panda is born it must be sent back to China to expand the gene pool.
When written in Chinese, the word 'crisis' is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.
There are 40,000-plus characters in the Chinese language. An educated adult will only get to learn 5,000 of them. 900–2,000 Chinese characters need be known in order to read a Chinese newspaper.
"I heard" is good
"I saw" is better
I drift like a cloud
Across this venerable eastern land
A journey of unfathomable distance
An endless scroll of experience
