Books referencing 《子路》 Library Resources
17 子路:
子夏为莒父宰,问政。子曰:“无欲速,无见小利。欲速,则不达;见小利,则大事不成。”
Zi Lu:
Zi Xia, being governor of Ju Fu, asked about government. The Master said, "Do not be desirous to have things done quickly; do not look at small advantages. Desire to have things done quickly prevents their being done thoroughly. Looking at small advantages prevents great affairs from being accomplished."
