During the Easter Han, the emperor wanted to entitle nobility to relatives of the empress dowager, she strongly disagreed and responded, “My extended family is obsessed with power and only knows to play. I’ve seen people visiting them, in front of their houses, carriages are like flooding water and horses are like dancing dragons. You will destroy the country if you entitle them.”
