Demeanour of Confucius in his village, in the ancestral temple, and in the court.
1. Confucius, in his village, looked simple and sincere, and as if he were not able to speak.
2. When he was in the prince's ancestral temple, or in the court, he spoke minutely on every point, but cautiously.
In the local community, Confucius was submissive and seemed to be inarticulate. In the ancestral temple and at court, though fluent, he did not speak lightly.
Confucius, dans le village où demeurait sa famille, était très simple ; il semblait ne pas savoir parler. Dans le temple des ancêtres et à la cour du prince, il s'exprimait clairement, mais avec une attention respectueuse.
