Books referencing 《木瓜》 Library Resources
1 木瓜:
投我以木瓜、报之以琼琚。
匪报也、永以为好也。
Mu Gua:
There was presented to me a papaya,
And I returned for it a beautiful Ju-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.

2 木瓜:
投我以木桃、报之以琼瑶。
匪报也、永以为好也。
Mu Gua:
There was presented to me a peach,
And I returned for it a beautiful Yao-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.

3 木瓜:
投我以木李、报之以琼玖。
匪报也、永以为好也。
Mu Gua:
There was presented to me a plum,
And I returned for it a beautiful Jiu-gem;
Not as a return for it,
But that our friendship might be lasting.
