How­ever, the cute kids will not go far be­cause get­ting cute im­plies an act of dis­hon­esty; Se­condly, the kids have good yet sim­ple mem­ory, they are good at mem­o­riz­ing an­cient Tang po­ems and cir­cum­fer­ence ra­tio. The sig­nif­i­cance of such sim­ple mem­ory work has been em­pha­sized too much by the par­ents while in fact they sel­dom “dis­cover” the real bril­liant kids.

—The sim­plest, the long last­ing
