Wang Hsi-chih (303-361), considerado por muchos como el mayor calígrafo de todos los tiempos en China dijo lo siguiente sobre el arte de la escritura:
"Cada trazo horizontal es una masa de nubes en formaciones guerreras; cada corchete, un arco tensado con rara fuerza; cada punto, una roca cayendo de una cima elevada; cada pico, un corchete de cobre; cada prolongamiento de línea, un sarmiento venerable y cada trazo libre y suelto, un corredor presto a saltar"

"Burma is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia, with decaying infrastructure and an economy that is just now starting to pick up after decades of stagnation. Yet, it boasts one of the highest literacy rates in the region.
The reverence for reading is evident when you visit. In Yangon, bookstores or book- lending shops are prominent on seemingly every street. Street vendors bide their time between customers reading news magazines. Book clubs are popular. Libraries such as the American Center and British Council Library have robust book club programs; a young professional and former medical student I spoke with during my last trip there said he and his friends have been involved in book clubs since their university days.”
