It's like this

Our senses are woefully sated.  Our brains are but tiny candles flickering in an infinity of darkness.  Our only wisdom is to admit that we cannot understand, and since we cannot understand we must do the best we can with faith, which is our only talent.  The greatest act of faith we are capable of is that of loving another more than we love ourselves, and occasionally we can be quite good at it.

Li Kao, from The Story of the Stone, by Barry Hugheart.

That confused me because The Story of the Stone is an alternate title for Dream of the Red Chamber, whose characters all have Chinese names.
