《菜根谭·学以致用 立业种德》 洪应明
He who studies without appreciating the insights of the wise men of old is no more than a copyist. He who holds office but loves not the common people is no more than a robber in official attire. Engaging in learning without refining one’s conduct is behaving like a person who tries to live up conversations by quoting phrases from the scriptures that he does not understand. A career pursued without storing up virtue is as transitory as flowers that bloom and die before one’s eyes.
