Chapter 10b

What makes a Minister Great?

January 21, 2020

The Chief of the Ki family was a wealthier man than the Duke of Chow had been, and yet Yen Yu gathered and hoarded for him, increasing his wealth more and more.

conf

“He is no follower of mine. It would serve him right, my children, to sound the drum, and set upon him.”

As for the characteristics of the four disciples=

Tsz-ku was simple-minded;

Tsang Si, a dullard;

Tsz-chang, full of airs; Tsz-lu, rough, Hwi comes near to perfection, while frequently in great want.

Tsz-kung does not submit to the appointments of Heaven; and yet his goods are increased;�he is often successful in his calculations.

Tsz-Chang What are some marks of the naturally Good Man?
conf He does not walk in others’ footprints, yet he does not get beyond the hall into the house."

Tsz-lu put a question about the practice of precepts one has heard.

conf “Yes, do so.”

On the occasion of that time of fear in K’wang, Yen Yuen having fallen behind, the Master said to him (afterwards), “I took it for granted you were a dead man.” “How should I dare to die,” said he, “while you, sir, still lived?”

conf ‘Great ministers’ are those who serve their prince conscientiously. They retire when they cannot do so. They may be called ‘qualified ministers.’
conf They would not follow him who should slay his father and his prince!
