On 4/17, I received an email from a friend of mine, who asked me “Can you give me your he-xin-jia-zhi-guan (core value) with a limited words?”
Never mind why he asked this and why it has to be “with a limited words” and I know I have the tendency to get lengthy. I wrote the following,
For myself, do the right thing, do my best and have a goal to live by every day, enjoy what I have at the moment.
Towards others, be nice and respect human beings for their intrinsic value.
I have tried to live with less prejudice but it’s hard to be free from it.
The only justification for them is, they make me happy. Indeed, do the right thing is the only way that will leave me happy. I will be tortured and unhappy by my own wrongdoings.
