Daily Chinese Proverb: Perfect Order

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Saturday, 7 November 2009 2 comments

This Chinese proverb is about how things in order are perfect and methodical. For me it is a strong signifier of the historical Chinese figure Qin Shi Huangdi unifying the country. The emperor gave the unified empire a single currency, a standardised system of weights and measures and a legal system and introduced a common written language.
