“We all know — all of us in our own minds — what it means to be grateful. But gratitude almost never appeared in handbooks and encyclopedias of human emotions compiled by psychologists. And the neglect of serious consideration of gratitude is not limited to psychology: Aristotle, for example, did not include it on his famous list of human virtues.” Xu stressed on the significance of gratitude, one of the most conspicuous merits in Chinese culture, and hoped that all the candidates shall bear it all along their life.
