    There isn't just one teacher to learning, I shall learn from the kind and experienced.
    Opening pages (reading) is beneficial, broad-subject reading is even better.
    I shall read books by the saints, so as not to deviate from or betray the righteous.
    I shall refer to the new, the same as I refer to the old to know the new.
    About being successful, what's of important is experience, together with self-discipline and improvement, only then I shall embrace the fame.

    It isn't difficult in approaching illnesses, what's difficult is the chaotic changes. Therefore prescription should be tailored cautiously, for being cautious is being complete and detailed.

    During emergency, I must not take things lightly. I must strategize all I can to reverse the adversity, so as to fulfill my obligation.
