The happiness of Hûi independent of his poverty.
The Master said, "Admirable indeed was the virtue of Hûi! With a single bamboo dish of rice, a single gourd dish of drink, and living in his mean narrow lane, while others could not have endured the distress, he did not allow his joy to be affected by it. Admirable indeed was the virtue of Hûi!"

Legge VI.9.

The Master said, 'How admirable Hui is! Living in a mean dwelling on a bowlful of rice and a ladleful of water is a hardship most men would find insupportable, but Hui does not allow this to affect his joy. How admirable Hui is!'

Lau [6:11]

Le Maître dit : « Que la sagesse de Ien Houei était grande ! Il demeurait dans une misérable ruelle, n'ayant qu'une écuelle de riz et une gourde de boisson. Un autre, en se voyant si dépourvu, aurait eu un chagrin intolérable. Houei était toujours content. Oh ! que Houei était sage ! »

Couvreur VI.9.

11. Nabi bersabda, "Sungguh bijaksana Hui ! Dengan hanya sebakul nasi kasar, segayung air, diam di kampung buruk yang bagi orang lain sudah tidak akan tahan ; tetapi Hui tidak berubah kegembiraannya. Sungguh bijaksana Hui".
