修身卷第三 - Cultivating the Self

English translation: Jeffrey S. Bullock [?] Library Resources
20 修身卷第... :
或問:「人有倚孔子之墻,弦鄭、衛之聲,誦韓、莊之書,則引諸門乎?」曰:「在夷貊則引之,倚門墻則麾之。惜乎衣未成而轉為裳也。」
Cultivating the Self:...:
Someone asked: If someone had leaned on Confucius's wall, strummed the music of Zheng and Wei, or recited the books of Han Feizi and Zhuang Zhou, then would he have invited them to enter his gate?
Yangzi said: If they were barbarians of the Yi or the Mo, then he would have invited them in. If they were his neighbors, then he would have run them off. What a pity, when people turn to making the robe before the tunic is complete.
