Be kind and tender to the Frog,
And do not call him names,
As ‘Slimy skin,’ or ‘Polly-wog,’
Or likewise ‘Ugly James,’
Or ‘Gape-a-grin,’ or ‘Toad-gone-wrong,’
Or ‘Billy Bandy-knees’:
The Frog is justly sensitive
To epithets like these.
No animal will more repay
A treatment kind and fair;
At least so lonely people say
Who keep a frog (and, by the way,
They are extremely rare).
("The Frog," by Hilaire Belloc)

From ancient China, three philosophies form the bedrock of ancient Chinese culture.
They each have a particular focus and also discuss the opposite of this main focus.
It is difficult for „western“ people to understand that these are not religions. They are all philosophies. They do not believe in a „higher being“ or „supernatural power“.
They all focus on real life order. Each is unique in helping maintain order and structure in society and personal life.
