The Master said, “It is said, ‘In archery, one does not emphasize piercing the hide of the target,’ because people’s strengths differ. Such is the ancient Way.”Confucius, & Slingerland, E. (2003). Analects: With selections from traditional commentaries. Hackett Publishing.
The Master said,
In archery hitting the target is not the point – people are not all of equal strength.
That was the old-time way.Confucius, & Watson, B. (2007). The Analects of Confucius. Columbia University Press.
