The Judgement
Duration. Success. No blame.
Perseverance furthers.
It furthers one to have somewhere to go.





The Image
Thunder and wind:
the image of Duration.
Thus the superior man stands firm
And does not change his direction.


The Lines

Seeking duration too hastily brings misfortune
persistently. Nothing that would further.


Remorse disappears.


He who does not give duration to his character
Meets with disgrace.
Persistent humiliation.


No game in the field.


Giving duration to one's character through
perseverance. This is good fortune for a
woman, misfortune for a man.

Restlessness as an enduring condition brings
misfortune.
