High Heeled Glass Church & Footless

A local official in South Taiwan claimed the high heeled glass church was built to commemorate a 24-year-old girl suffered from Blackfoot disease. Both of her legs had to be amputated, leading to the cancellation of her wedding. She remained unmarried and spent the rest of her life at a church. More from BBC.
Discrimination of Confucius
   There was a man called Toeless. He went to see Confucius.
 
     “You were not cautious and were plagued by mishap to get to your current state. Now that you are here, it’s too lat.” said Confucius.
 
     Toeless defended himself, “I did not know how things work and recklessly used myself, so I lost my foot. Now that I am here, there is still something more precious than the foot; I must make sure it is left intact. There is nothing that the sky would not cover nor would the earth not hold. I thought the teacher is like the sky and earth, how would I know that you are like this!”
 
      Confucius said, “It’s my fault. Why don’t you come in? Please talk more so I can listen.”
 
       Toeless left.
 
       Confucius said to his disciples, “Encourage yourself with this. The one-foot man still strive to learn to make up for his wrong doings, what more should the man do with integrity intact!”
