Lunyu V. 9. (101)

Superiority of Yen Hûi to Tsze-kung.
1. The Master said to Tsze-kung, "Which do you consider superior, yourself or Hûi?"
2. Tsze-kung replied, "How dare I compare myself with Hûi? Hûi hears one point and knows all about a subject; I hear one point, and know a second."
3. The Master said, "You are not equal to him. I grant you, you are not equal to him."

Legge V.8.

The Master said to Tzu-kung, 'Who is the better man, you or Hui?' 'How dare I compare myself with Hui? When he is told one thing he understands ten. When I am told one thing I understand only two.'
The Master said, 'You are not as good as he is. Neither of us is as good as he is.'

Lau [5:9]

Le Maître dit à Tzeu koung : « Lequel des deux l'emporte sur l'autre, de toi ou de Houei ? »Tzeu koung répondit : « Comment oserais-je me mettre en parallèle avec Houei ? Il suffit à Houei d'entendre expliquer une chose pour qu'il en comprenne dix. Moi, quand j'en ai entendu expliquer une, je n'en comprends que deux. » Le Maître dit : « Tu lui es inférieur ; je suis de ton avis, tu lui es inférieur. »

Couvreur V.8.

9. a. Nabi bertanya kepada Zi-gong, "Engkau dengan Hui, siapakah kiranya lebih tangkas berpikir ?"
b. Zi-gong menjawab, "Bagaimana Si berani membandingkan diri dengan Hui ? Hui bila mendengar satu dapat mengerti sepuluh, sedangkan Si bila mendengar satu dapat mengerti paling-paling dua".
c. Nabi bersabda, "Memang tidak sebanding. Bahkan Aku denganmu tidak sebanding dengannya".
