The Feast of Lanterns

Paperback (Forgotten Books Jan. 25, 2019)
Excerpt from The Feast of LanternsEvery Chinese is born into surroundings of pre eminent beauty-beauty of form, beauty of color, beauty of exquisite juxtapositions - natural beauty and beauty of all things that are made; into beauty, and into an almost untainted atmosphere of good-taste and intrinsic kindliness.Consciously or unconsciously every Chinese is a sin cere lover of nature and of everything lovely. No other people has so stern and uncompromising a sense of justice, so ready a sense of humor, more balance, more unflinching loyalty, or less exaggerated estimate of the importance of self. It is a proud people without vanity - a self-reliant, strong people, lacking brutality; suave without affectation, dignified without self-as sertion - free from ridiculousness, industrious, con tented; hard-working dreamers who, too, are shrewdly practical, honest above all other races, home-keeping, home-loving; first of all peoples in its love of children, and in its chivalrous treatment and just estimate of womanhood.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
