《泰 - Tai》

English translation: James Legge [?] Library Resources
1 泰:
泰,小往大来,吉亨。则是天地交,而万物通也;上下交,而其志同也。内阳而外阴,内健而外顺,内君子而外小人,君子道长,小人道消也。
Tuan Zhuan:
'The little come and the great gone in Tai, and its indication that there will be good fortune with progress and success' show to us heaven and earth in communication with each other, and all things in consequence having free course, and (also) the high and the low, (superiors and inferiors), in communication with one another, and possessed by the same aim. The inner (trigram) is made up of the strong and undivided lines, and the outer of the weak and divided; the inner is (the symbol of) strength, and the outer of docility; the inner (represents) the superior man, and the outer the small man. (Thus) the way of the superior man appears increasing, and that of the small man decreasing.
