Seagulls by Lie ZiSeagull parable

A young man who lived by the sea loved seagulls.  Every morning at daybreak he would go to the seaside and play with the gulls.  Hundreds of gulls would come to him and not fly away.

His father said, 'I heard that seagulls like to play with you.  Catch a few for me so that I can play with them too.'  The next morning when the father went to the seaside the seagulls swooped about in the skies but none came down to him.

The message of this parable is that one may try, but unable to, hide one's inner thoughts. Even birds and animals can sense one's true feelings.

Traditional Chinese Sense of Humour

Prime Minister Chang was happy enough to write, but he didn't put in a lot of care into his brush strokes. Everybody sneered at his bad handwriting, and the Prime Minister himself really didn't care.

One day Chang thought of a beautiful sentence and at once wielded his writing brush to write it down, indeed, there were dragons flying and snakes dancing all over the paper. Then he ordered his secretary to write it out neatly. Jump of Cliff

When beginning to copy, his secretary stared tongue-tied and did not know where to start. The young man had to take the manuscript back to the Prime Minister.

'Prime Minister Chang, I can't read your handwriting, please tell me what words they are.'

The Prime Minister read his cursive hand a long time, and did not know what Chinese characters they were, either. He then turned to blame his secretary. 'Why didn't you come earlier to ask me? I myself have forgotten the words which I've written.'
