In China, the proposition of Philosophical Breakthrough is out of question if there is no Confucius or the Analects of Confucius. We say Chinese philosophy is ethical, and the core of its philosophy system is the theory of morality. Western cultures lay emphasis on pursuing trueness, while Chinese on seeking goodness. In old time, either to an eminent scholar, or to a Martial arts teacher, the first lesson was to be a human, and morality. Students were asked to memorize mottos or aphorisms, mostly from the Analects of Confucius.
China's traditional moral resources, after decades of being heaped indignity, have even become a scarce in some metropolis. In this world, where ethics people are often seen as "alternative", some people exclaim that today is a world of materialistic and smelly copper. But in a number of "uncivilized" remote lands, the morals of our ancient books still exist. Farmers and farmwomen, though may be illiterate, use languages and behaviors that embodied in the living philosophy of "benevolence, righteousness, courtesy, wisdom, faith, loyalty, filial piety, warmth, goodness, good faith, frugality, and humility". Moreover, they teach their children with precepts and examples, which influence on their next generations.
