There has been an old maxim “Cultivate the mind, and then regulate the family, state and world” since ancient China. Regulating the family refers to getting married and starting one's career. However, getting married cannot come true without a house. Therefore, it is deeply rooted in Chinese people's mind that house is an important signal of home and gives them a sense of belonging. The importance attached to house makes house both a symbol of living environment and a symbol of individual status. The deeply rooted traditional concept and strong sense of belonging attract many loyal and persistent people in the city to join the group which struggles to buy a house. You could say the soaring price of house in China is closely related to Chinese people's idea about house.
1.修身、齐家、治国、平天下:“修身”即“修身养性”，"齐家”即“管理好家族”，“治国”即“治理好邦国”，“平天下”即“平定天下”。简单地说，这句古训意为“修养身心，而后才能治理好家族、邦国和天下”，故译为Cultivate the mind and then regulate the family, state and world,其中的“国”并不是现代意义上的国家，而是指“诸侯国”、“邦国”，故译为state。
2.成家立业:即“结婚和创立亊业”，译为get married and start one's career。
3.归属感:可译为a sense of belonging。
