Of them, the masterpiece" Taoist Priest from Laoshan" tells a person who loves ease and hates works. Wishing to succeed by luck, he comes to Lanshan to learn skills but fails. Reading the story people do not know whether to laugh or cry. But from it people draw inspirations. In the past several hundred years, the book has spread widely.
