'Of all which a filial son can attain to, there is nothing greater than his honoring his parents. And of what can be attained to in the honoring one's parents, there is nothing greater than the nourishing them with the whole kingdom. Kû-sâu was the father of the sovereign; this was the height of honor. Shun nourished him with the whole kingdom; this was the height of nourishing. In this was verified the sentiment in the Book of Poetry,Go here to read the introductory post to this serialized version of the Works of Mencius."Ever cherishing filial thoughts,'It is said in the Book of History, "Reverently performing his duties, he waited on Kû-sâu, and was full of veneration and awe. Kû-sâu also believed him and conformed to virtue." This is the true case of the scholar of complete virtue not being treated as a son by his father.'
Those filial thoughts became an example to after ages."
