When I was a child, I only knew the first half of the sentence, which has been quite inspirational, until I knew the second half of the sentence ………… Edison said :" Genius is ninety-nine percent perspiration and one percent inspiration, and it is often the last one percent that determines success." Failure is not terrible, terrible is that you still believe this sentence (funny) genius is ninety-nine percent perspiration and one percent inspiration. In fact, there is another sentence after, and the most important is the one percent inspiration. In work and life, these famous sayings must be on your lips, but you may have overlooked the more important second half of the sentence ~

"Hold your hand, grow old with you" original interpretation: Praise the feelings of comrades-in-arms, is the word that two comrades-in-arms encourage each other in the arduous and long expedition environment. The poem comes from the "Book of songs *邶 wind * drumming", the whole sentence is: "death and life contract wide, and Zi Cheng said; Hold your hand and grow old together."

Think twice before you leap! Next sentence: Son smell, said: "Again, can do." Language out of "The Analects of Confucius ▪ Gongye Chang" Ji Wenzi think twice. Son heard it, said: "Again, can do." Ji Wenzi never does anything without thinking about it many times. Upon hearing this, Confucius said, "It is enough to consider it twice." This sentence is not to advise us to think twice before we act, but to do things do not be too cautious, worry too much!


Return good for evil, full sentence: "The Analects of Confucius · Xian Wen" : or "Return good for evil, what?" Confucius said, "How can you repay virtue? Straight for evil, good for good." The original meaning: A student asked Confucius: Others beat me, I use morality and benevolence to feel him, OK? Confucius said, "If you return good to evil, how can you return good?" Confucius said, "If a man returns his' kindness 'to his' resentment,' with what will he repay the kindness of others?" What should he do when others treat him well? When Confucius asked the students about this, he gave his opinion that "straight for evil, good for good." Say a person, if others have failed you, sorry you, you can use your fair integrity, to respond to him. Give back to those who have done you favors with kindness and gratitude. When someone hits you, you should "complain straight". It can be seen that Confucius is opposed to "good for evil", the reason why the current phenomenon is distorted by someone out of context. Confucius did not approve of avenging a grievance. That creates a vicious cycle. Confucius also did not approve of good for evil. Blind tolerance is conniving at crime. Confucius advocated that "virtue is the principal punishment and auxiliary punishment" should not only talk about morality, no punishment. Confucius advocated benevolence, but we should not forgive all mistakes and crimes with benevolence without principle. Confucius advocated a third approach to the problem of complaining. He advocated the "straight answer", that is, the principle of fairness and integrity, decisive, direct way to face the fault of people and things. If someone has failed you, you can use your integrity to treat him. What is "direct revenge"? You give me a slap, I don't give you a punch, but spit on you, not too much! You scold me, I can not scold you, but I ignore you, always OK? For example, if a thief steals something from you, and you break his arms and legs after you catch him, that's called "revenge for revenge." That's how "revenge for honesty" works. Confucius always advocated this. One cannot repay each other and kill each other; Second, we should not tolerate adultery and connive at crime. To return grievances directly, in modern terms, is to take up the weapon of law, to solve the problem of injustice with just laws, and to conduct moral and legal education for those who do not speak morally. The law is a standard, a yardstick from which one cannot deviate too much. In Chinese culture, Confucius's thought of "recompensing grievances with straightness" has the same view as Mozi's thought and chivalrous thought, and both advocate "straightness". Therefore, the idea of chivalry in China and the idea of Mozi are widely spread among the people, the so-called "revenge the brow", the so-called "when the road sees the injustice, draw the sword to help." It is from this spirit that it evolved. I was born with a cliff, but I know there is no cliff. Zhuangzi once said, "I was born with a cliff, but I know there is no cliff. If I seek no cliff with a cliff, it is almost impossible." People clearly want to express is not always think can exhaust the knowledge of the world, knowledge can not be finished. Instead, later generations summed up the "learning sea is endless" to encourage people to refuel... "Man is born free," the next: "but he is everywhere in chains," and the next: "He who thinks himself the master of all else is more of a slave than all else." Every man is responsible for the rise and fall of the world; No individual is responsible for the rise and fall of a country. Gu Yanwu's famous saying: "The rise and fall of the world, every man has the responsibility", long spread, "the world" was changed to "the country". This is not Gu Yanwu's original intention, and on the contrary, Gu Yanwu's original intention is that the rise and fall of the country is "meat eaters", and every man is not responsible. Einstein only took one point because the German test score is scored on a six-point scale, with one point being the highest. China is a sleeping lion, when it wakes up, the whole world will tremble. There is actually a sentence after... It's sleeping, thank God, let it sleep! Good for evil has a second sentence and context. The Analects of Confucius: "Or, 'How about returning good for evil? The Son said, "How can you repay virtue?" Return a grievance directly; Good for good. '" The son let you have revenge. A favor is reciprocated. How can a Virgo like Confucius really be so generous!


(As long as the kung fu is deep, the iron club is ground into a needle) must have been taught by the teacher, but there is another part of the story. Story: Once Li Bai went to play, when he passed by the brook, he saw an old woman grinding an iron pestle, and felt strange. He heard the old lady say that she needed a needle, so he came to grind it. Li Bai said it was impossible to grind this way, but the old woman said that as long as I did not listen to the grinding, I could certainly grind into a needle. So Li Bai sighed. (As long as the effort is deep, the iron pestle is ground into a needle). Is that the end of the story? In fact, Li Bai said to the old woman that she could buy an unnecessary one, and the old woman understood and lost the iron pestle. (The latter part tells us that we should learn to work flexibly and not be too rigid.) However, due to the meaning of giving up halfway, textbooks and people only have the first part.
