Usage notes[edit]

This phrase is often used in the construction 向前看 (“to look ahead; to look forward”). A common pun in Chinese, which originated during the early period of economic reform under Deng Xiaoping in the 1980s, is 向錢看向钱看 (“to look toward money; to be focused on money”), which has an identical pronunciation with the phrase 向前看.
