Sima Guang (1019 --- 1086 AD) was a Prime Minister and outstanding historian of the Northern Song Dynasty. He devoted his life to writing the classical chronicle "Historical Events Retold as a Mirror for Government" (Zi Zhi Tong Jian). As a young boy, Sima Guang was a diligent and curious student, showing an outstanding intelligence. When he was six or seven years old, once he was playing with his friends in the courtyard, when a child fell into a large vat full of water. Frightened, the other children ran away. But Sima Guang suddenly hit on an idea. He picked up a stone and broke the vat with it. The water split out, and the child was rescued. Shortly afterwards his deed was drawn into pictures and widely told. Till today this story has been known to every household in China, inspiring countless children's minds and courage.
