Tsze-kung said, Our master is benign, upright, courteous, temperate, and complaisant and thus he gets his information. The master’s mode of asking information,-is it not different from that of other men?”

Tsai Wo asked, saying, A benevolent man, though it be told him,-’There is a man in the well” will go in after him, I suppose.” Confucius said, Why should he do so?” A superior man may be made to go to the well, but he cannot be made to go down into it. He may be imposed upon, but he cannot be fooled.”

Chi Tsze-ch’ang said, In a superior man it is only the substantial qualities which are wanted;-why should we seek for ornamental accomplishments?”

The Master said, When the music master Chih first entered on his office, the finish of the Kwan Tsu was magnificent;-how it filled the ears!”

At sixty, my ear was an obedient organ for the reception of truth.

The Master said, The commander of the forces of a large state may be carried off, but the will of even a common man cannot be taken from him.”

Tsze-lu said, Does the superior man esteem valor?” The Master said, The superior man holds righteousness to be of highest importance. A man in a superior situation, having valor without righteousness, will be guilty of insubordination; one of the lower people having valor without righteousness, will commit robbery.”

Tsze-lu then inquired of Chieh-ni, who said to him, Who are you, sir?” He answered, I am Chung Yu.” Are you not the disciple of K’ung Ch’iu of Lu?” asked the other. I am,” replied he, and then Chieh-ni said to him, Disorder, like a swelling flood, spreads over the whole empire, and who is he that will change its state for you? Rather than follow one who merely withdraws from this one and that one, had you not better follow those who have withdrawn from the world altogether?” With this he fell to covering up the seed, and proceeded with his work, without stopping.
