Master

If ye cut, if ye file,

If ye polish and grind,

Is that what is meant?

The Master said, Now I can begin to talk of poetry to Tz’u. Tell him what is gone and he knows what shall come.

The Master said, “Not to be known is no sorrow. My sorrow is not knowing men.”

– Confucius

(iBook) Excerpts from the Book of the Wise Sayings William Alexander Clouston
