Rev Dr Timothy Tow

What is scholarship? Here’s some encouragement to my students from a reflection of Confucius’ observation on filial piety, “If a man withdraws his mind from lust for beauty, and applies it as sincerely to the love of the virtuous, if in serving his parents he can exert his utmost strength, if in serving his prince he can devote his life, if in the intercourse with his friends, his words are sincere – although men say that he has not learned, I will certainly say that he has.” So, pardon my saying, “If a student is industrious and not lazy and loves his God with a fervent heart, and respects his teachers and can live peaceably with his roommates and discharge his duties meticulously, though men say he not having earned a degree is not learned, I will certainly say that he is.”

In FEBC’s 30th Anniversary Magazine the principal had earlier observed, “Not every degree or diploma holder, however, is qualified, but some who studied less in point of time are become more profitable servants.” Sad to say, I can see before my mental eyes two degree holders who have petered out by learning from a haughty master. Good that they came not on Graduation Day to receive their degrees. Another who also absented himself from the Convocation is now sunk in oblivion. Learning without inculcation of moral values is monstrous failure. God puts them in a corner. (Source: Life Weekly, 16 May 1993)
