Encouter

One’s mind should contain thousands of books

One’s eyes should have read hundreds of great books and scriptures of previous ages and generations.

And the wheels and footprints of one’s wagon and horse should have been to half of the entire world.

Only then one can pick up his brush.

– Xhou Zihu circa 1195 – 1241
