Zhuge Changqing: The Book of Rites "It is not a courtesy to come and go, but to come and not to go"
The Chinese nation, a nation of manners. The unity of heaven and man, the eternal prosperity of all generations. ...... Zhuge Changqing
The Chinese nation, a nation of etiquette.
The Book of Rites, by Confucius, records the fundamental ways of etiquette.
Confucius spent his life promoting rituals in order to protect the roots of rituals, to promote the fundamental laws of Chinese rituals and to help the development of China.
According to Zhuge Changqing's research, manners are everywhere, throughout every person, every family, every detail of the country and every corner of society.
For example, etiquette is not a rite of passage. This is the basic requirement for a gentleman's human decency. Many people do not pay attention to it.
Confucius said for this reason in the Book of Rites that
The Supreme Being values virtue, and the second is to give reward. Rites are not rites. It is not a courtesy to come without coming; nor is it a courtesy to come without going. If a man has manners, he is safe; if he does not have them, he is in danger. Therefore, it is said that rites must be learned. A man of manners is a man who humbles himself and honours others. Even if a man is a peddler, he must be respected, let alone a rich man. If you are rich and know good manners, you will not be proud or lascivious; if you are poor and know good manners, you will not be deterred.
According to Zhuge Changqing, these words of Confucius remind people that etiquette should be used to regulate interpersonal relations, family, social communication and the state.
All people, rich or poor, should be modest and courteous, respect each other and make progress together.
Zhuge Changqing wishes everyone, to observe etiquette, to spread it, to promote it and to advance it.
