When 406 26| Mencius said, 'A man with definite aims to be accomplished 407 23| with his virtue, serve a degenerate prince. There was Î Yin; -- 408 24| court, he was punished by degradation of rank; if he did so a 409 9 | greatly pleased with the deep dejection of his countenance and the 410 19| so; when it was proper to delay, he did so; when it was 411 4 | princes of the various States deliberated together, and resolved to 412 12| perverse speakings will delude the people, and stop up 413 22| away the other: -- their delusion is extreme.

To dig the well 448 7 | The position of a high dignitary of Ch'î is not a small one; 449 19| What was the arrangement of dignities and emoluments determined 450 12| With your leave I will diminish my appropriations, and will 451 11| leave to try again."
