VMFA Calligraphy

 

"Wherever one can go by boat or by carriage, 
Men carry out their orders 
And satisfy their desires; 
For our Emperor in accordance with the time 
Has regulated local customs, 
Made waterways and divided up the land. 
Caring for the common people, 
He works day and night without rest; 
He defines the laws, leaving nothing in doubt, 
Making known what is forbidden. 
The local officials have their duties, 
Administration is smoothly carried out, 
All is done correctly, all according to plan.
The Emperor in his wisdom 
Inspects all four quarters of his realm;
"

- Stone Inscription on Mount Langya, The Records of the Grand Historian
