Finding pleasure in the discriminating study of ceremonies and music, finding pleasure in discussing the good points in the conduct of others, and finding pleasure in having many wise friends, these are advantageous.

Hence it is said, 'Only by perfect virtue can the perfect path, in all its courses, be made a fact.' Confucius
