  • Yan Fu pointed out the core difference between China and the West, which is the different attitudes towards human potential. The West encourages individuals to act in their own self-interest, while China suppresses individual behavior, keeping them in a state of ignorance and weakness for easier management.


  • This article points out that in the eyes of physicists, Hawking cannot be compared to Einstein and others on the same level. His book "A Brief History of Time" made him a well-known physicist, and his great fame led the general public to mistakenly believe that Hawking made significant contributions, but in reality, it is not the case. This is similar to the admiration of Wei Shen by the Chinese people. Both have characteristics that the general public likes and that are marketable: having certain physical disabilities while achieving heights beyond ordinary people in their respective fields.


  • Sales, fundamentally, is a deceptive profession. The more honest you are, the more you get deceived. The same goes for intermediaries. That's why I hate dealing with these two types of people the most.


  • Life goal: to live freely and make a few bucks along the way.


  • Forever free = always prone to failure.


  • In the second half of the 19th century, the Qing Empire faced challenges such as population pressure, economic impact from world trade, and natural disasters, which eventually led to a series of rebellions. During the process of suppressing these rebellions, more serious problems were left behind, namely the decentralization of central power. Local governments gained unprecedented power, allowing them to cultivate their own influence and lay the groundwork for the subsequent fragmentation of the empire.


  • The more hardship one can endure, the more hardship awaits them.


  • Huilongguan and Tiantongyuan, abbreviated as "Huitian," immediately reminds me of the phrase "Huitianfashu" (meaning "no way to turn things around"). Netizens pointed out that "Huitian" was a man-controlled torpedo used by the Japanese special forces during World War II.


  • The phrase "the harder you work, the higher you climb" really exposes one's values.


  • When a new product comes out, it is a good thing to actively experience it. Maintaining curiosity about new things is important. I hope that even when I am old, I can continue to maintain this curiosity. Regardless of whether I will actually use the product, the choice to try and accept it is important. Do not overly rely on one's own experiences and think that everything is something they have already tried. This mindset is not good, and this attitude is not friendly to anyone.


  • Happiness comes from needing fewer essential things in life.


  • Large companies are the least lacking in resources, but sometimes resources can also be a reverse accelerator.
