礼乐(道德标准)之必须

1.国之四维

国有四维,一维绝则倾,二维绝则危,三维绝则覆,四维绝则灭……何谓四维。一曰礼,二曰义,三曰廉,四曰耻,礼不愈节,义不自进,廉不蔽恶,耻不从枉。故不逾节则上位安,不自进则民无巧诈,不蔽恶则行自全,不从枉则邪事不生。 — 《管子·牧民》


2.
人生而有欲,欲而不得,则不能无求;求而无度量分界,则不能不争。争则乱,乱则穷。先王恶其乱也,故制礼义以分之,以养人之欲,给人之求。使欲必不穷乎物,物必不屈于欲,两者相持而长,是礼之所起也。 — 荀子·礼论

I am an academic researcher working on Offshore Geotechnical Engineering. My blog aims to write down some work related trivial things and tricks about software, programming. It is basically a memo for me to back up some thoughts and small details. But I am more than happy if someone would visit and discuss.
