孔子老聃Confucius said to Lao Dan,
》、《》、《》、《》、《》、《'I have occupied myself with the Shi, the Shu, the Li, the Yue, the Yi, and the Chun Qiu, those six Books,
for what I myself consider a long time,
and am thoroughly acquainted with their contents.
With seventy-two rulers, all offenders against the right,
I have discoursed about the ways of the former kings, and set forth the examples (of the dukes of Zhou and Shao);
and not one of them has adopted (my views) and put them in practice:
how very difficult it is to prevail on such men,
!” and to make clear the path to be pursued!'
