Ask without shame, for it is better to ask and learn, than to abstain and forever be none the wiser.
That is today’s idiom:
- 不 – Bu4
- 耻 – Chi3
- 下 – Xia4
- 问 – Wen4
Literally it translates to “ask without shame”.
耻 is shame and 问 is inquire.
This idiom promotes a lifetime of learning, always asking and always improving, much like the Chinese spirit.
Never be afraid to ask! For only then shall you receive.
Even if you think it is a stupid question, at least you will know not to ask it again next time.
