The border-warden at Yi requested to be introduced
to the Master, saying, 'When men of superior virtue have come to this, I have
never been denied the privilege of seeing them.' The followers of the sage
introduced him, and when he came out from the interview, he said, 'My friends,
why are you distressed by your master's loss of office? The kingdom has long
been without the principles of truth and right; Heaven is going to use your
master as a bell with its wooden tongue.'
