The Master discusses with his disciples and unveil his preoccupations with society. Tr. Legge (en), Lau (en) and Couvreur (fr).
The superior man is discriminating in his employment of men and judging of statements.
The Master said, "The superior man does not promote a man simply on account of his words, nor does he put aside good words because of the man."
The Master said, 'The gentleman does not recommend a man on account of what he says, neither does he dismiss what is said on account of the speaker.'
Le Maître dit : « L'homme honorable n'élève pas quelqu'un sur ses [simples] propos, ni ne rejette un propos parce qu'il vient d'un quidam. »
