icon《曾国藩家书》
  
《曾国藩家书》反映了曾国藩一生的主要活动和他治政、治家、治学、治军的主要思想。

 曾国藩是中国近代史上最显赫和最有争议的人物,他一生严于治军、治家、修身、养性,实践了立功、立言、立德的封建士大夫的最高追求。被后世视为道德修养的楷模。青年时代的毛泽东对他这位赫赫有名的同乡评价甚高,蒋介石更是把曾国藩奉为终生学习的楷模,并亲自从《曾国藩家书》中摘录出许多语录,然诵参悟。

Zeng Guofan's Famliy Letters
Zeng Guofan, an important senior official in the late Qing Dynasty, gave his family instructions in family letters rather than a book. The thoughts of his family instructions, which do not draw the due attention of scholars, offer valuable implication for the current family education. His thoughts can be summarized from three aspects, i. e. reading books, being a man, and managing household. Specifically, Zeng instructs his children to read books by arguing that the purpose of reading books is not to be a successful candidate in the imperial entrance examination, but to learn how to be a man from the saints. Zeng also argues that everyone can be a saint only if s/he is obedient and humble and that a flourishing family depends on whether every family member is diligent, thrifty and kindhearted.
