 In the City Palace and in the Countryside Farm

The classical texts of China and other countries represent a crystallization of scholarly wisdom. Their study requires a certain resolve. These texts have formed the path of my education, and yes, my awakening. 
In the process of conducting research, scholars require a pure heart. They must have the resolve and temperament to endure loneliness, since what they do entails a rare discipline: to admit neither deception nor affectation into the thought process. 

Thanks to their hard work—often a lifelong devotion of meticulous study and research—we now have priceless books to guide us back to an origin through the history of ideas. In using their intellectual landmarks to trace this path, we locate the origin of our self-awareness, and we allow wisdom and truth to prosper, just as we discover how to understand that truth. 
When discussing those scholars who possess such a rare pedigree, we should despise with all prejudice. I used to hear people say: ‘A theoretical scholar? Well, what does he know about practice and reality?’ 
As a matter of fact, whether a person is theoretical or practical in approach, if he has grasped the truth, all methods will lead to the same result. 

Let us not label those who are theoretical in orientation--as opposed to practical--as being of lesser wisdom or standing. Both approaches deserve our equal respect, because they have pursued a methodology that eliminates the false and retains the true; they have created a process that permits us to make discrimination with clear minds: in doing so, we learn the precepts of traditional culture in a consistent, systematic manner. 
I have observed many scholars take formulations of complex learning and streamline them intellectually--without loss of meaning—to create clarity in the mind. A reader feels genuine delight in the presence of such accessible levels of wisdom; it is like basking in a spring wind. The efforts of scholars to make the truth available radiates a humanistic warmth and care on their part. In their explanations, they have restricted themselves to the realities presented by human nature. They have brought the classics within reach of the ordinary person. 
It is they who have demonstrated the profound learning and cultivation of High Culture—and the delicate sensibilities that such a gathering of ideas can generate. 

But are we to understand that only theoreticians know culture? 
Many of us may have read the piece about two migrant workers, possibly a couple, hesitating outside a 7-11 store. They hesitate to enter. They worry that the dirt on their shoes might muddy the store and cause inconvenience for others. They may not be well-educated, but their decision to wait outside reflects a cultivation which includes a wide-ranging consideration for others. 

Over thousands of years, people on the land have worked hard to create physical artifacts and other cultural elements—not only tangible things such as pavilions, roads, bridges and folk houses, but also the intangible—songs, dance, village rituals and regulations, rules for family life, folk customs, traditional arts, and temple fairs. Rural culture is the origin of Chinese culture. It represents good ground for the cultivation of national qualities, sustaining all Chinese who understands the true, the good, and the beautiful. 
Maintaining a preference for practical over theoretical scholarship runs against the essential significance of culture. Culture should be inclusive at its core. It should embrace warmth and kindness among people. It should be reflected in local customs, art and culture, and be equally present in what we recognize as the true, the good and the beautiful. We become true people of culture when we show the same regard for those who live in the city and those who live on the farm—equally and without prejudice; when we learn from the classics and practice the teachings within; when we benefit from the experience of others and show compassion for others; when we respect the life situations that are different from ours and forgive them their mistakes, while protecting their cultural achievements with awards and recognition. When we put these ideals into practice, we become people of culture.
