How Hûi loved to learn.
Chî K'ang asked which of the disciples loved to learn. Confucius replied to him, "There was Yen Hûi; he loved to learn. Unfortunately his appointed time was short, and he died. Now there is no one who loves to learn, as he did."
Chi K'ang Tzu asked which of his disciples was eager to learn. Confucius answered, 'There was one Yen Hui who was eager to learn, but unfortunately his allotted span was a short one and he died. Now there is no one.'
Ki K'ang tzeu demanda à Confucius lequel de ses disciples s'appliquait de tout son cœur à l'étude. Le Maître répondit : « Ien Houei s'y appliquait de tout son pouvoir. Malheureusement il a peu vécu. À présent personne ne l'égale. »
