周德裕[edit]

Meaning of Deyu (德裕)[edit]

"Deyu (德裕)" is my given name. It's made up of two Chinese characters - "德 (De)" and "裕 (Yu)". In Chinese, "De (德)" means integrity or virtue and "Yu (裕)" means rich. The word "Deyu (德裕)" comes from Confucianism.

足國之道:節用裕民,而善臧其餘。節用以禮,裕民以政。彼裕民,故多餘。裕民則民富,民富則田肥以易,田肥以易則出實百倍。上以法取焉,而下以禮節用之,餘若丘山,不時焚燒,無所臧之。夫君子奚患乎無餘?故知節用裕民,則必有仁聖賢良之名,而且有富厚丘山之積矣。此無他故焉,生於節用裕民也。不知節用裕民則民貧,民貧則田瘠以穢,田瘠以穢則出實不半;上雖好取侵奪,猶將寡獲也。而或以無禮節用之,則必有貪利糾譑之名,而且有空虛窮乏之實矣。此無他故焉,不知節用裕民也。《康誥》曰:「弘覆乎天,若德裕乃身。」此之謂也。

Xunzi (荀子)

窮則獨善其身,達則兼濟天下。

If poor, they attended to their own virtue in solitude; if advanced to dignity, they made the whole kingdom virtuous as well.

Mencius (孟子)
