The Chinese civilization is the oldest civilization still in existence today, and extends back through history in an unbroken chain over nearly four thousand years. Throughout these thousands of years of history, the Chinese people have been instrumental in developing technologies and advancing the knowledge of mankind.
The Chinese have been ruled by a succession of dynasties. A dynasty is a family that passes the right to rule the nation from one generation to the next.
To have doubted one''s own first principles is the mark of a civilized man.
Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.
The White House was originally gray. It was first painted white to cover fire damage. This was the first time it was called the White House.
