a quotation[edit]

Reflections on Things at Hand: noteworthy and beautiful, but with no place in the article so far:

Heaven is my father and earth, my mother... Therefore that which fills Heaven and earth I regard as my body and that which directs Heaven and earth as my nature. All people are my brothers and sisters, and all things are my companions. - Liu Kwang-ching, “Socioethics as Orthodoxy,” in Liu Kwang-ching, ed., Orthodoxy In Late Imperial China (Berkeley, 1990), 53-100:76.--Shanghainese.ua (talk) 07:46, 13 June 2014 (UTC)

"Zai" should be read in the (modern) 4th tone[edit]

In the name Zhang Zai, the character zài 載 must be read in the 4th (falling) tone. See for example the entry in dict.revised.moe.edu.tw ; this makes sense, because his courtesy name was Zihou 子厚, which together with his given name Zai 載 refers to the Yijing: 坤厚載物 or 地厚能載物 (obviously to be read zài) P345 (talk) 14:16, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
