Filial Piety - He Gave Up His Career to Search for His Mother (Stories from the tiles)

When Zhu Shouchang was 7 years old, his mother (his father's concubine) was driven away from home by his stepmother (his father's main wife). When he grew up, he became a government official and held office for years. He missed his mother and hoped to reunite with her, even though they had never seen each other for over 50 years. When Zhu Shouchang finally received clues of her whereabouts, he gave up his career, travelled far in search of her, and vowed never to give up until he found her. He was eventually reunited with his mother, who was already in her 70s then. (source: Wikipedia)
