A great mountain is stately; it is the lord of all the mountains. Thus all the hills and slopes, forests and valleys, should be arranged around it; it is the chief of everything far and near; large and small. Its appearance is that of an emperor sitting majestically in his glory, receiving the courting of his subjects, but without any sign of arrogance.
-Kuo Hsi, Eleventh Century Sung Dynasty Chinese landscape painter.
