Is it not pleasant to learn with a constant perseverance and application?
“习”(learning) used to be composed of two parts with “羽”(meaning feathers) on the top and “日”(meaning days) at the bottom.
It represented birds' day-to-day practice of flying.
The Analects of Confucius starts with “to learn with a constant perseverance”.
The saying is not only about learning,
But also about the perseverance that “习”represents.
Constant dripping wears away a stone,
No matter how complicated the world is,
It becomes clearer to us after all under unremitting exploration.（人民日报中央厨房·传工作室）
