GUEST83167 Pangu created the world

Before the supreme ancestors, the world (not just the earth), was just a big black ball of chaos, with no order what so ever. Inside side this chaos there was Pan Gu. He slept in this ball for 18,000 years, and woke one day. When awoken he felt unhappy with his surrounding, so he got an ax and with all his might crack the ball open. When the ball cracked all the light (the good part of the ball) floated up, making the heavens. All the cold and dark stuff stayed below making the earth.

But the land and heavens are very closed to each other. So Pangu stand there for a long time to make them seperated. This continued to Pangu's death.

When Pan Gu died, his breath became the wind and clouds, his voice the rolling thunder. One eye became the sun and one the moon. His body and limbs turned to five big mountains and his blood formed the roaring water. His veins became far-stretching roads and his muscles fertile land. The innumerable stars in the sky came from his hair and beard, and flowers and trees from his skin and the fine hairs on his body. His marrow turned to jade and pearls. His sweat flowed like the good rain and sweet dew that nurtured all things on earth. According to some versions of the Pan Gu legend, his tears flowed to make rivers and radiance of his eyes turned into thunder and lighting. When he was happy the sun shone, but when he was angry black clouds gathered in the sky. One version of the legend has it that the fleas and lice on his body became the ancestors of mankind.

The determination to win victory and the courage to surmount every difficulty
The determination to win victory and the courage to surmount every difficulty
Beishan, a man named Yu Gong, is nearly ninety years old and lives in the mountains. Suffering from the traffic jam in the north of the mountain, he came in and went around the road. He gathered all his family and said, "I do my best to get rid of the steep mountains and make the way to the south of Yuzhou, to the South Bank of Hanzhou, can you?" (everyone) expressed their approval. His wife asked, "by virtue of your strength, even the Kui Fu's hill can not be shovelled. What about the two mountains of Taihang and Wang Wu? And where do you put the earth and rocks? " They all said, "throw it to the side of Bohai, and hide the north side of the earth." So the three people (able) to pick up the burdens (up the mountain), dustpan and dustpan were transported to the edge of Bohai, and the neighbours were orphaned by the widows of the Beijing city. They were seven or eight years old, and they jumped and helped them. In winter and summer, it is only once again and again.
Hequ wise old man (knowing this afterwards) ridiculed and stopped Yu Gong and said, "you are too smart! With your remaining years and the rest of your strength, you can't even destroy a plant on the mountain, and what about the dirt and stones on the mountain? " Beishan, Yu Gong sighed, "you are stubborn and stubborn to the point where you can't change. You are not equal to widows or orphans. Even if I die, I have a son, son, son, son, son, son, son, grandson, son and grandson not exhausted, but the mountain will not increase the height, why worry about unequal digging? " The Hequ wise old man has no words to answer.
The mountain god with a snake in his hand heard about this incident, for fear that he would keep on working and report to the emperor of heaven. The emperor was moved by his sincerity. He ordered the two sons of Hercules to carry two mountains, one placed in Shuo Dong and one in Yongnan. From then on, there was no mountain barrier in the southern part of Jizhou to the South Bank of Hanshui River.

GUEST21068 Jing Wei reclamation
Once upon a time, there was a little girl who named Nvwa. She is the daughter of Yan Di Shen Nong. One day she went to the East China Sea to play and drowned in the water. But she still felled unequal. So she became a bird after she died. She had white mouth, colorful feather and red paws. She hated the sea a lot, so she brined stones and plants from the mountains into the East China Sea every day. She didn’t stop although she know this work was impossible. This story remind us that we must persist in doing anything, go forward bravely and never give up. In the face of adversity, we must go forward in a difficult way. We must have confidence in ourselves and have a clear conscience. And I think it’s an interesting story, because Chinese people know reincarnation in ancient times and believe it many thousand years. I think many it’s really true. Hope you like this story.
