Two years later, during the Mid-Autumn Festival, Zhang Shao killed chickens to prepare rice. His family members said that he would never come after such a long time. Zhang Shao didn\’t take it seriously. On the Mid-Autumn Festival, Shi Fan came all the way and had a good time with each other over wine. In ancient China, there were many stories and people sung like this. Every time I think of them, my heart warms. Kong Rong let pear Kong Rong was a famous writer in the late Eastern Han Dynasty. When he was young, every time he and his brother ate pears, they would only take the smallest one. When his father asked him why, he said: \”I am the younger brother and the youngest, so I should eat the smaller ones.\” Later, \”Kong Rong let the pears\” became an allusion of unity and friendship. Cheng Menlixue During the Northern Song Dynasty, Yang Shi and You Ye went to seek advice from their teacher Cheng Yi. They happened to catch Cheng Yi resting. They couldn\’t bear to disturb them, so they waited quietly for the teacher to wake up. After a while, it snowed heavily outside the house, and the weather was cold. When Cheng Yi woke up, the snow was already a foot deep. And \”Cheng Menlixue\” has also become a model of respecting teachers.

They threatened and lured him many times and even exiled him to the remote Beihai to shepherd sheep. Su Wu held on to the talisman representing the Han Dynasty and never left his body.

In the last years of the Qin Dynasty, there lived a man named Ji Bu in the Chu region. He was upright, chivalrous and helpful. As long as it is something he promised, no matter how difficult it is, he will try to do it. Therefore, there is a widely circulated proverb among the people of Chu State: \”It is better to get Jibu Yinuo than to get a hundred catties of gold.\” This is also the origin of the idiom \”a promise brings a thousand gold\”, which describes a person who values ​​his promises and keeps his integrity. Zhao Rou sells plows. Zhao Rou is from the Northern Wei Dynasty. Once he went to the street to sell plows. A man wanted to buy Zhao Rou\’s plow. Zhao Rou asked for twenty pieces of silk. Another person saw that his asking price was too low, so he offered thirty pieces of silk to buy it. Zhao Rou said, however, that when dealing with others, it is settled with just one word. How can one be tempted when there is a profit? Still sold the plow to the same person. When Tiying rescued her father in the Western Han Dynasty, the official Chun Yuyi was sentenced to corporal punishment and escorted to Beijing. His youngest daughter Chunyu Tiying insisted on going to Beijing with her father all the way. In order to save her father, she wrote to Emperor Wen of Han Dynasty, saying that corporal punishment would prevent the prisoner from reforming, and she was willing to enter the palace and become a slave to pay for her father\’s crime. Emperor Wen of the Han Dynasty was so moved that he abolished corporal punishment, and \”Tiying saved her father\” became a famous allusion of filial piety. Yang Zhen refused gold. There was a minister in Heze named Yang Zhen. He was an honest official and often recommended talents to the court.

He lived with a businessman when he was rushing to take the exam. Later, the businessman became seriously ill and died, so he gave him a pearl worth thousands of dollars. Cui Shu buried the merchant, but did not accept the pearl, but buried it in the tomb with him. His lack of greed for money later became a legend.

Once when he went to visit a sick friend, Hu soldiers attacked the city. He refused to abandon his friends and run away alone, and was willing to use his own life to replace his friends\’ lives. Hu Bing was greatly moved and led his troops to withdraw, and the whole city was saved. Jubo Xun\’s loyalty to his friends has also been passed down through the ages. During the Tang Dynasty, Mian Bogao, a special envoy from a place in Yunnan, was ordered to present swans to Emperor Taizong of the Tang Dynasty. On the way, the swan flew away, leaving only a few goose feathers. Mian Bogao still traveled thousands of miles to deliver the gift, and said: \”Gifts are light but affection is heavy, but goose feathers are sent thousands of miles away.\” Since then, \”send goose feathers from thousands of miles away\” has been used to describe a thin gift but extremely strong affection.

Others were vying to pick pears to eat, but Xu Heng sat alone. The people next to him advised him that this pear tree has no owner now, so why should you mind. He replied: \”The pear tree has no owner, but my heart has an owner. I can\’t accept taking what others have lost.\” When Xun Jubo visited his friend Yanzi and refused to reward Qin Qiu, Yanzi, the prime minister of Qi, went to court and used a bad chariot and horses. Simple. Qi Jinggong sent people to give him luxury cars many times, but he declined them all. He believed that when managing officials, he should start from himself, be diligent and frugal, and set an example for the officials and the people. In the Jin Dynasty, there were two people who were poor but diligent in their studies. One, named Li Yin, used small pockets to illuminate his books while reading in the summer. The other, named Sun Kang, used the reflection of snow to read in the winter. Therefore, people describe studying hard as a firefly reflecting the snow.

The old man happily called him a teachable boy and gave him a book, which was the military classic \”Tai Gong\’s Art of War\”. This story later became an allusion to respecting the elderly. Li Shiqian in the Northern Dynasty was a wealthy man. One year he lent thousands of dan of grain to his fellow villagers. However, due to the famine that year, the borrower was unable to repay the grain, so he burned all the deeds. The next year, the crops were abundant. When the person who borrowed the grain came to pay him back, he still refused to harvest it. This also serves as an example of helpfulness. Fan Zhongyan cares about the world.

He heard that some places were building official residences and mansions and cutting down precious trees, so he strongly opposed them. When he learned that there was a drought and locust plague in the Jianghuai River, he also advised the emperor to open warehouses to provide disaster relief. And his famous line expressing his ambition, \”Be concerned about the world\’s worries first, and be happy after the world\’s happiness\” has been widely circulated in later generations.
