Recommendation for Hu Shi's book

Viewed 259 times 2017-10-8 21:45 |System category:Life

Even though I wasn't following his words, his words are so inspiring for Chinese scholars, researchers and even university students like me. His name was so well-known in the past. He was ever an idol for so many people. Now let me tell you his name--he is Hu Shi.

Just five or six days ago, I spent 2 or 3 days finishing one of his books, which is called Tolerance and Liberty. This book is a collection of his essays, most of which were his open speeches in the universities in the very past.

From my old impression on him, he was a pioneer of leading modern Chinese writing, persuading us to give up the ancient way of Chinese writing. Perhaps I couldn't tell you more about him than you to me. But from his book Tolerance and Liberty, I learned so much. I could comprehend knowlege of what a scholar should be. Even I am a university student but when I come to some study I need to work as a scholar equipped with some requirements by Hu Shi. Those requirements were disseminated from Hu Shi but had been seen on so many scientists, scholars from home and abroad in or before the age of Hu Shi. I am still convinced that those requirements are truths for us now and in the future. They are forever truths from my perspective.

I wish you can have some time off to read that book from which you will be amazed by Hu Shi's wisdom and will be inspired to take those requirements for youselves.

    Never ending 'war on terror' is no accident. With capitalists or against them. And yes change in media and CIA taking complete control is no accident. These actions are actually proof of how scared and weak the American 'elite' are and people hate them more now than in the 90s. JJ  Abraham cannot save them. It's only a matter of time. Conditions are now perfect to destroy them

    Only simple people can be happy with a simple life. I am not a simple person - I am quite complicated.

    HailChina!: Have you ever seen the show 'The Simple Life'? It was an American TV show featuring millionaires Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie and it was about them ...
    You must have got a lot of feelings for what has been done by American media. Terrorist actions are always big blows in America. Maybe the media knew what "the most familiar" to people is what "the most eye-catching to them" . When peace and prosperity were all around America, the media sold peace and prosperity; when terrorist actions and "having fun of the disadvantaged" are so permeated in people's hearts, especially the rich, the media sell those. Commerce runs as it does but we can be not just as what the reality tells us. We may be different from people of other times; yet, we must share the same nature of being. No matter what "realtiy" shows us, the nature of being shall lead us half step forward with half step in thinking through "reality". The reality is so complicated that unveiling real happiness out of simple life will be so precious and cherished.
