Two quotes from Confucius that (although taken a little out of their original context) are quite apt here. (Reminds me that I never finished reading the Analects. Should really pick it up again.)

You are going to make a lot of next generation Chinese blush. [sigh]

Are you a scholar?

No, but that is an integral part of our heritage that we learned at school.  My wife reads more books than I do but every now and then I can teach her a thing or two.  The trick is to make her feel that she is still the boss. 

It was only a fleeting interest of mine a few years ago. It still interests me, but I haven't got the time and energy for it anymore as I'm up to my neck in books already.

I always like how there are some universal wisdoms that transcend time and culture, especially when it comes to learning. "Know thyself"

The wisdom of those people are truly fascinating, consider the fact that they lived 2500 years before us.
