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.

6. The bird's nest burns up. The wanderer laughs at first, Then must needs lament and weep. Through carelessness he loses his cow. Misfortune.

5. He shoots a pheasant. It drops with the first arrow. In the end this brings both praise and office.

4. The wanderer rests in a shelter. He obtains his property and an ax. My heart is not glad.

3. The wanderer's inn burns down. He loses the steadfastness of his young servant. Danger.

2. The wanderer comes to an inn. He has his property with him. He wins the steadfastness of a young servant.

1. If the wanderer busies himself with trivial things, He draws down misfortune upon himself.
