Kung-ye Ch'ang

(untitled)


The Master said, 'Fine words, an insinuating appearance, and excessive respect;- Tso Ch'iu-ming was ashamed of them. I also am ashamed of them. To conceal resentment against a person, and appear friendly with him;- Tso Ch'iu-ming was ashamed of such conduct. I also am ashamed of it.'
