Roots as the foundation of being a proper human being

Trees can stay alive, stand tall and grow due to its roots. Without the roots being established first, no tree can grow. Even when reduced to a stump, new trees can sprout from the existing network of roots.
In the same way, I think we are like trees. If we want to be tall and strong for humanity, we have to first identify and focus on nourishing our roots (practicing morality and virtue in our thoughts, speech and actions). With this we can then have the Wisdom to guide our Intelligence, Ethics, and Humanness to benefit society, just as a huge tree can provide shade for many people.

以此类推,我想我们若想有强大的能力为大众服务,就应先识别并专注于滋养我们的根 (思想、言语和行为实践道德)。这样,我们才能有智慧引导我们的智力、伦理及人性造福社会,就如一棵大树能荫庇多人。
