Quote1 Shu-Tan was a poor farmer's son. He never attended school or learned to read, but he possessed the gift of words. When he spoke they reverberated in your soul. Not just because the words were true. But because they promised something as yet unseen. A better world. You were loved brother. We are all poorer now... Quote2
