The Wisdom of the Dragon, by Induk Pahk

A lovely illustrated collection of Korean proverbs, including such gems as “There is a flaw even in jade...”. Illustrated by Gloria Kim. Pahk, the founder and president of a major technical university in South Korea, is the author of two memoirs about her early years in Japan-occupied Korea, her struggle for education, her faith and her immigrant experience.
