Chinese Moral Philosophy: Virtue of Life

There is a Chinese saying: "If you borrowed some money from someone, then you repay that person with money; but if you owe someone a personal favor, favor that you sought from them, then you can't repay back with money, for you owe them your soul, even if it means you have to sacrifice your life as a form of redemption - for till then, you still had not repaid your dues."

That's the virtue of life and that's the fundamental virtuosity that man must possess.

It may sound foolish and obnoxiously moronic - but that's the Chinese moral!

We may be rich because we work hard and live miserly. But the fundamental moral philosophy of life is more than these basics.

Life must be lived to the fullest. Life is more than just being hardworking and having a lot of wealth. Life is about living, something that's worth living.

Life is a journey to an end - the grave. When life ends, what's left is - your legacy - what we had done for others and what's worthy to be remembered - of you.

That's life!
