on honor, on shame


Regard the love of the motherland as an honor, regard damaging the motherland as a shame
Regard serving the people as an honor, regard deviation from the people as a shame
Regard the advocation of science as an honor, regard fatuity and ignorance as a shame
Regard diligence as an honor, regard indulgence as a shame
Regard union as an honor, regard selfishness as a shame
Regard honesty and sincerity as an honor, regard dishonesty at the sight of profit as a shame
Regard discipline and law-abidance as an honor, regard disorder and lawlessness as a shame
Regard plain living and hard struggle as an honor, regard living in luxury as a shame
