To know the stop, then can stand steady, then calm, then ease, then think, then get.
To learn is no other than to correct the mistake as soon as it becomes known.
It is kind if one cares others in the same way who cares himself and it is also kind to condemn himself in the same way who condemns others.
Not to hide and torture yourself by a tiny selfish mind.
To know means to know what he knows and what he does not know.
The theory of Buddha in China is much comprehensive, which affects Chinese culture in a way unknown. The ordinary people misunderstood the idea of Buddha but get the benefit what they want and can. The theory of Buddha is much, but what we can do here is just a tiny of it.
Not only freedom of speech, publish¡ under the law, but freedom of mind, freedom of no body, and freedom of no no body.
Not only equal under the law, but equal under the universe, equal with animal and everything alive.
Every one is Buddha:
Not only Buddha is Buddha, but every one can be a Buddha if uncovered.
Road, can be a Road, but no Road unchangeable.
Name, can be a Name, but no Name unchangeable.
Honour or Dishonour are arising from the body of oneself.
No one can compete non-competition.

The History of the C&M (China) Law Office
The firm was established in 1992 following the open door policy and a strategy to reform the legal and lawyer's system in China. At that time, all law firms in China were state-owned and run law offices all over the country, causing foreign investors hesitating to come to China because no one could be sure there was not any conflict of interest between them and Chinese governments. On the other hand, a lot of promises or preferential treatment were made by the governments at all levels to the foreign investors, who can be appointed to represent them and protect their interest in China in case law dispute arising since all law firms were state-owned and run?
In response to the call mainly from abroad and with the support of some high officials who were keen on the reform, a number of pioneers in international legal practice were encouraged to establish private partnership with special approval as a try to work especially for foreign traders who have a business in China.
Today, all the state-owned and run law firms must be re-registered as private law firms within given time according to a policy adopted in 2000.
There are altogether about 100,000 lawyers and 10,000 law firms in China. C&M (China) Law Office is one of them.
