  • Married Love

    by Kuan Tao-Sheng
    You and I
    Have so much love
    That it
    Burns like a fire,
    In which we bake a lump of clay
    Molded into a figure of you
    And a figure of me.
    Then we take both of them,
    And break them into pieces,
    And mix the pieces with water,
    And mold again a figure of you,
    And a figure of me.
    I am in your clay.
    You are in my clay.
    In life we share a single quilt.
    In death we will share one bed.
  • When Two People Are at One from I Ching

    by Fu Xi
    When two people are at one
    in their inmost hearts
    They shatter even the strength of iron
    or of bronze
    And when two people understand each other
    in their inmost hearts
    Their words are sweet and strong
    like the fragrance of orchids.
  • Oath of Friendship

    by Anonymous, China, 1st Century BC
    I want to be your friend
    For ever and ever without break or decay.
    When the hills are all flat
    And the rivers are all dry,
    When it lightens and thunders in winter,
    When it rains and snows in summer,
    When Heaven and Earth mingle
    Not 'til then will I part from you.
  • Excerpt from Tao Te Ching 01

    by Lao Tzu
    Without words, without even understanding,
    lovers find each other.
    ...The moment of finding is always a surprise,
    like meeting an old friend never before known.
  • Excerpt from Tao Te Ching 02

    Explore and discover that which is within.
    When we find ourselves, we are more easily found by others.
  • Chinese Wedding Poem

    I want to be your friend forever and ever
    When the hills are all flat
    And the rivers run dry
    When the trees blossom in winter
    And the snow falls in summer,
    When heaven and earth mix
    Not till then will part from you.
  • Prayer for Peace

    by Lao-Tse
    If there is to be peace in the world,
    There must be peace in the nations.
    If there is to be peace in the nations,
    There must be peace in the cities.
    If there is to be peace in the cities,
    There must be peace between neighbors.
    If there is to be peace between neighbors,
    There must be peace in the home.
    If there is to be peace in the home,
    There must be peace in the heart.
  • Plucking the Rushes

    A boy and a girl are sent to gather rushes for thatching
    Green rushes with red shoots,
    Long leaves bending to the wind –
    You and I in the same boat
    Plucking rushes at the Five Lakes.

    We started at dawn from the orchid-island:
    We rested under elms till noon.
    You and I plucking rushes
    Had not plucked a handful when night came!
