56. 火山旅 Lu / The Wanderer
The Wanderer. Success through smallness.
Perseverance brings good fortune
To the wanderer.
Fire on the mountain:
The image of the Wanderer. Thus the superior
man Is clear-minded and cautious In imposing
penalties, And protracts no lawsuits.
If the wanderer busies himself with trivial
He draws down misfortune upon himself.
The wanderer comes to an inn.
He has his property with him.
He wins the steadfastness of a young servant.
The wanderer's inn burns down.
He loses the steadfastness of his young
The wanderer rests in a shelter.
He obtains his property and an ax.
My heart is not glad.
He shoots a pheasant.
It drops with the first arrow.
In the end this brings both praise and office.
The bird's nest burns up. The wanderer laughs
at first, Then must needs lament and weep.
Through carelessness he loses his cow.
