Other Translations:

The Master said, “To learn and then have occasion to practice what you have learned – is this not satisfying? To have friends arrive from afar – is this not a joy? To be patient even when others do not understand – is this nto the mark of the gentleman?”

Confucius, & Slingerland, E. (2003). Analects: With selections from traditional commentaries. Hackett Publishing.

The Master said, Studying, and from time to time going over what you’ve learned – that’s enjoyable, isn’t it? To have a friend come from a long way off – that’s a pleasure, isn’t it? Others don’t understand him, but he doesn’t resent it – that’s the true gentleman, isn’t it?
