Lunyu VII. 34. (184)

What Confucius declined to be considered, and what he claimed.
The Master said, "The sage and the man of perfect virtue;– how dare I rank myself with them? It may simply be said of me, that I strive to become such without satiety, and teach others without weariness." Kung-hsî Hwâ said, "This is just what we, the disciples, cannot imitate you in."

Legge VII.33.

The Master said, 'How dare I claim to be a sage or a benevolent man? Perhaps it might be said of me that I learn without flagging and teach without growing weary.' Kung-hsi Hua said, 'This is precisely where we disciples are unable to learn from your example.'

Lau [7:34]

Le Maître dit : « Oserais-je penser que je possède la sainteté ou la Vertu [suprême] ? Mais, tout ce que je puis dire, c'est que je m'y attelle sans jamais en éprouver de dégoût, et les enseigne sans jamais me lasser. » Koung si Houa dit : « Ce sont précisément deux choses que nous autres, disciples, ne parvenons pas à apprendre. »

Couvreur VII.33.

34. a. Nabi bersabda, "Untuk menjadi seorang Nabi atau seorang yang berperi Cinta Kasih, bagaimanakah Aku berani mengatakan ? Tetapi di dalam hal belajar dengan tidak merasa jemu, mendidik orang dengan tidak merasa capai, orang boleh mengatakan hal itu bagiKu."
b. Gong Xi-hua berkata, "Justru dalam hal itulah murid-murid tidak dapat mencapainya."
