Inclusiveness gives rise to greatness, and freedom from selfishness helps one stand upright. Indifference to fame and fortune characterizes a high aim in life, and leading a quiet life helps one reach afar. It will be a long process for a great writer or artist to make progress, comprehend and become accomplished. To reach afar, writers and artists should “see as far as they can see,” defy desolation that may arise when “the west wind withers trees,” withstand loneliness “when reaching the top of a high-rise building alone,” “never regret” even if “their clothes are becoming loose,” love their career even if it makes them “haggard” before they eventually realize what they want as shown in these lines:
In the crowds for her I’d searched a thousand times
Perchance I turned
And there she was
Where lights were few and dim.
