    ser aficionado al aprendizaje es estar cerca del conocimiento. practicar con vigor es estar cerca de la magnanimidad. poseer el sentimiento de vergüenza es estar cerca de la energía. El que conoce estas tres cosas, sabe cómo cultivar su propio carácter.

    lubić się uczyć, to być blisko wiedzy. ćwiczyć z wigorem, to być blisko wielkoduszności. posiadanie poczucia wstydu oznacza bycie blisko energii. ten, kto zna te trzy rzeczy, wie, jak pielęgnować swój charakter.

    увлекаться обучением - это близко к мудрости; практиковать с энергией - это почти доброжелательность; и осознавать стыд близко к стойкости. тот, кто знает эти три вещи

    喜欢学习就是接近知识。充满活力的实践是接近宽宏大量。拥有羞耻感是靠近能量。知道这三件事的人,知道如何培养自己的品格。
