Textul de pe ultima copertă

This book contains some four hundred symbols, and even a casual runthrough will show how many of these are concerned with the same few basic themes. These were the things that mattered to the Chinese in their everyday lives, their heart's desires-to live a long and healthy life, to attain high civic and social rank, and to have children (i.e. to have sons).
