עמוד 17 - It is characteristic of the most entire sincerity to be able to foreknow. When a nation or family is about to flourish, there are sure to be happy omens ; and when it is about to perish, there are sure to be unlucky omens. Such events are seen in the milfoil and tortoise, and affect the movements of the four limbs. When calamity or happiness is about to come, the good shall...
עמוד 130 - But what. should a leader be like?" asked Ts'ao. "He should be inbued with firmness and courage ; never turn aside from a difficulty, but be in the van of his officers and men. Rewards should be certain; and so should punishments." Ts'ao Ts'ao smiled with pleasure. In the twenty-third year of the period, Wu Huan of Taichiin revolted, and Ts'ao Ts'ao sent this son with five legions to suppress him. Just as he was leaving, his father read him a homily on his duty. "At home we are father and son, but...
עמוד 208 - Ruler, may thy life be eternal." The ruling policy of Han had failed them, Dangers pressed in upon the House, And the land they had held so long Passed from them for ever. Little thought he, who then snatched their sceptre, That the precedent he then claimed Would be used in due time by another To justify the destruction of his own House. The officials then requested Ts'ao P'ei to make a solemn declaration to Heaven and Earth, which he did with humble obeisance. But at this moment a sudden storm...
עמוד 550 - Hsu by name, at his audience was questioned about affairs in the west, and he told King Sun Hsiu, saying, "All affairs of state are in the hands of a certain eunuch named Huang Hao, and all the courtiers look up to him as to a father. At Court plain truth is never heard, and the country 'people look sallow and starved. The whole country appears on the verge of destruction. The birds on the roof do not know that the building is about to be burned.
עמוד 291 - Minister, let me return to my ravines I will muster another army and fight a decisive battle with you. If you capture me again then I will incline my heart and own myself beaten and yield. I will not go back on my promise again." "If you refuse to yield next time you are captured, I shall .hardly pardon you." At K'ung-ming's orders the cords were loosed and refreshments were brought for the prisoner. "Remember," said K'ung-ming, "I have never failed yet.
עמוד 64 - Remember the former attempt with Tung Ch'eng. The plot was discovered and great misery ensued. I fear that this will leak out also and both of us will be undone." Said the Empress, "We pass our days in constant discomfort, like sitting on a rug full of needles. If life is to be like this one were better dead. But I know one loyal man among the attendants to whom I may entrust the letter. That one is Mu Shun, and he will deliver it.
עמוד 373 - We should not have gone far before being caught," said K'ung-ming. Quite open lay the city to the foe, But Chuko's lute of jasper wonders wrought; It turned aside the legions' onward march For both the leaders guessed the other's thought. "But if I had been in his place I should not have turned away," said K'ung-ming, smiling and clapping his hands. He gave orders that the people of the place should follow the army into Hanchung, for Ssuma would assuredly return. They abandoned Hsich'eng and returned...
עמוד 270 - You are a famous scholar in your own land, Sir, and since you have asked so many questions about t'ien I take it you are well up in all celestial matters. When original chaos resolved into its two elements, yin and yang, or female and male, the lighter portion, or ether, rose and became t'ien, sky, and the grosser sank and solidified into ti, earth. When Kung Rung's rebellion was crushed, its head struck the Puchou (Imperfect) Mountain, the supports of heaven were broken and the bonds of earth were...
עמוד 317 - ... decided to make a general advance to drive the men of Shu before him. They fled, even casting aside their breastplates and throwing away their arms, they were in such haste to flee. And they went toward a white flag that appeared in the distance. They found a camp already made, which they occupied. Soon, however, King Wut'uku came near, and as he pressed forward Wei Yen abandoned this camp and fled. When the Mans reached the camp they took up quarters therein. Soon after they set out to renew...
עמוד 137 - it is fitting to follow political changes and suit one's conduct to circumstances. Wherefore first take the princedom and then memorialise the Throne." As there seemed no option, Yiian-te listened and complied. In the twenty-fourth year (219 AD), in the seventh month, an altar was set up at Mienyang (in Hupeh) , square and nine li about, which was set around with the proper flags and banners and symbols, and thereon, in the presence of all his officers assembled according to their rank, and at the...
