“An invisible thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, and circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle. But it will never break.”

Source Notes: I believe that this translation is good, however my knowledge of Chinese is very limited. If there are any mistakes in the translation or its spacing (which I did myself) I apologize and ask that you comment with corrections, thank you.
Also, I am recording all proverbs as attributed because there is little record of the origin of nearly all proverbs, and many of the ideas and concepts from proverbs are found in similar sayings in other languages and cultural traditions.
