The Master discusses with his disciples and unveil his preoccupations with society. Tr. Legge (en), Lau (en) and Couvreur (fr).
In judging of a man, we must not be guided by his being generally liked or disliked.
The Master said, "When the multitude hate a man, it is necessary to examine into the case. When the multitude like a man, it is necessary to examine into the case."
The Master said, 'Be sure to go carefully into the case of the man who is disliked by the multitude. Be sure to go carefully into the case of the man who is liked by the multitude.'9
Le Maître dit : « Quand la haine ou la faveur de la multitude s'attache à un homme, il faut examiner pourquoi. »
