Ravaging Times

chapter 188

(I need to read this over, no time right now)

{outskirts of Yushui Pass . the fifth camp of the Cao army}

[Pang Tong]: All in all there is only one type of the so-called strategy.
[PT]: In the beginning, you want the enemy…

chapter 188 Behind the Analects
/* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Analects_of_Confucius */

[?]: Mister Pang… give it a rest!
[PT]: Haha, the Analects says, learn without satiety, and instruct others without being wearied.
/* http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Confucius */

[PT]: If everyone already understand, then what is the next step?

[Dong Xiang]: If Cao Cao is defeated, the other troops would retreat to Wuyin. We might’s well prepare an ambush.
{Liang Ping army’s Advisor, Dong Xiang}
{Song Li army’s Great General, Chen Nan}
[Chen Nan]: If we head straight for Xudu, we’ll rescue the Emperor in no time.

[PT]: Liang and Song armies would fight together to eliminate a traitor, I bet one day the world would…
[CN]: Haha. The Master is good at leading one on step by step.

[PT]: Yes, still the way of Confucius.
[CN]: Then it’s time for us to take action.

[Jia Xu]: Your students?

[PT]: Now do you understand why I was reluctant to leave school?

[JX]: So you took up teaching while we were already out here fighting for our lives.
[JX]: No wonder you were able to gather all these minor warlords as well.

[JX]: But it’s just a motley crowd; no hope of achieving greatness.

[PT]: With Imperial Han in their hearts, even small rivers can merge into a great sea.

[JX]: If you let me go, there just might be surging waves.
[PT]: Third, without prejudice, even surging waves can help the sail.

[PT]: The Analects says, all men are brothers within the four seas.
[JX]: I’m not one of your ignorant students.

[JX]: I left early because I didn’t want to hear those absurd Truths.

[PT]: A line from the Analects for you,

[PT]: those whose courses are different cannot lay plans for one another.

Differences in opinion often lead to future conflicts.

Sacred words will always be the slogan for desire!
