“Mount Tai is great because it takes in all soils, ocean is great because it rejects no rivulets.” This was put down in 237BC in China by Lee Shi to Emperor Qing the metaphor for a great nation : the greatness of a nation depends on how much it can embrace. As soil and rivulet, I found my mountain and ocean right here in Texas.” – Dr. Paul Chu, Physicist
