Notes on this version

I have made some minor adjustments to the official translation to enhance readability. I have also converted the spelling from UK English to US English. I have also included some definitions for obscure words and word pictures for those words that were developed by the original translator to express Chinese phraseology, all with the intent of making this version more readable by a broader mass of people. Any questions or errors regarding this document may be directed to me, David Quentin Dauthier ( Please use the subject: "the quotations" in your email.
