Tian Wai You Tian


“Tian Wai You Tian” is a Chinese proverb (Chengyu) that translates roughly to “There are Skies Beyond Skies.”On the one hand, the expression implies limitless possibility; universes beyond what we currently conceive and the grandeur of new experiences… On the other hand, the proverb is often used in Chinese culture to admonish the prideful. The expression also means that no matter how good you think  you are; how knowledgeable you imagine yourself to be; there will be someone or something greater, brighter and more knowledgeable out there.

Given the dynamism of today’s world, I think this sentiment perfectly captures the particular combination of wonder and humility with which I hope to convey my experiences in Asia.

Stay tuned for more updates!
