    I like the third quote about the company you keep. I’ve always believed that a sign of a good relationship is one where you bring out the best in each other. (I’m still looking…)

    I just read both the Lao Tzu, and Confucius quotes in a book called “Building a Jade Screen” this week (Chinese Medicine book about building your immunity.)
