The guiding principles in the relation of prince and minister.
The duke Ting asked how a prince should employ his ministers, and how ministers should serve their prince. Confucius replied, "A prince should employ his minister according to the rules of propriety; ministers should serve their prince with faithfulness."
Duke Ting asked, 'How should the ruler employ the services of his subjects? And how should a subject serve his ruler?'
Confucius answered, 'The ruler should employ the services of his subjects in accordance with the rites. A subject should serve his ruler by doing his best.'
Ting1, prince de Lou, demanda comment un prince devait conduire ses sujets, et comment les sujets devaient obéir à leur prince. Confucius répondit : « Le prince doit commander à ses sujets selon les prescriptions, et les sujets doivent lui obéir avec fidélité. »
