QuotationIt has been a little while since I received your kind letter and later on the copy of the Hsiao Ching, for which I am deeply grateful. I have also heard from Jubilee and they are willing to have me review the two books. So I intend in due time to do an article on them. I enjoy the Hsiao Ching very much indeed. In its simplicity it has roots in the highest wisdom and one is surprised at the "modern" sound of some of its basic intuitions. I hope to study these two books carefully and am trying to write of them worthily. I hope I will myself grow in wisdom.
