It is an English translation of an ancient Chinese poem "Lou Shi Ming" by Liu Yu-xi (A. D. 772 842) in Tang Dynasty, which means a memorial posy of a shabby chamber. The first two lines of that poem consist of only eight Chinese characters, with the meaning in English as: "A mountain does not necessary to be high, as long as there lives a saint, it will get good fame. A water body does not necessary to be deep, as long as there exists a dragon, it will demonstrate vital spirit."
