6．Etiquette to society is what apparel is
to the individual. Without apparel men would go in shameful nudity which would
surely lead to the corruption of morals; and without etiquette society would be
in a pitiable state and the necessary intercourse between its members would be
interfered with by needless offences and troubles. If society were a train, the
etiquette would be the rails along which only the train could rumble forth; if

rudiments of knowledge. Even what you learn during the four years of university
will be something quite superficial too. A university has often been
misleadingly referred to as “the highest seat of learning”, which sounds as if

you get only the first taste of learning and the emphasis is on research
methodology and practice. Art is long, life is short. That is why some of our
ancients continued to study even when they were hoaryheaded. They were, of
course, motivated by an enormous interest in their studies.
