The Chinese community of Stockton dedicates this monument to the city of
Stockton to commemorate the bicentennial year of 1976, in memory of the
contributions which the Chinese have made to Stockton.
The ingenuity of the Chinese immigrants in agriculture, business, and the culinary arts were shared with the community. They imparted their cultural heritage based on the Confucian philosophy which emphasizes cultivation of human dignity, mutual respect, filial piety, social harmony, righteousness, virtue and world peace — "Under Heaven, One Family".
The Chinese people are proud of the opportunity to contribute their ancestral heritage to the growth of the city of Stockton.
( back )
When the Great Principle prevails, the world is a commonwealth. Public
Officials are selected according to their wisdom and ability. Mutual confidence is prompted and good neighborliness cultivated. People do not honor only their own parents, nor do they love only their own children; provision is made for the care of the aged till death, for the useful employment of the able-bodied and for the proper upbringing of the young. Helpless widows and widowers, orphans and the lonely as well as the sick and the disabled, are well cared for. Men have their respective occupations and women their
homes. They do not like to see wealth lying idle, yet they do not keep it for their own gratification. They despise indolence, yet they do not use their energies for their own benefit. Thus selfish schemings are repressed and robbers, thieves and other lawless elements no longer exist, and there is no need for people to shut their outer doors. This is called the great Harmony.
