Lunyu II. 11. (27)

To be able to teach others one must from his old stores be continually developing things new.
The Master said, "If a man keeps cherishing his old knowledge, so as continually to be acquiring new, he may be a teacher of others."

Legge II.11.

The Master said, 'A man is worthy of being a teacher who gets to know what is new by keeping fresh in his mind what he is already familiar with.'

Lau [2:11]

Le Maître dit : « Celui qui repasse dans son esprit ce qu'il sait déjà, et par ce moyen acquiert de nouvelles connaissances1, pourra bientôt enseigner les autres. »

1. Littéralement. « En réchauffant l'ancien [tout comme on réchauffe un mets], on perçoit le nouveau. » De répétitions en réinterprétations des textes anciens, se dégagent un sens nouveau, actuel, et une application pratique (MBC).

My name is Sanzinsoo. My website is http://uk.geocities.com/sanzinsoo. My translation for this phrase (Lun Yu 2:11) is as follows.

Master Kong said to me, "If you would like to see the future or what is new, you should study the past or what is old. If you could study the past and see the future, you could become a Master."
