The Master said, “Do you disciples imagine that I am being secretive? I hide nothing from you. I take no action, I make no move, without sharing it with you. This is the kind of person that I am.”Confucius, & Slingerland, E. (2003). Analects: With selections from traditional commentaries. Hackett Publishing.
The Master said, You young men, do you think I’m hiding something? I’m not hiding anything. I take no actions that are not taken in conjunction with you. That’s Qiu for you.Confucius, & Watson, B. (2007). The Analects of Confucius. Columbia University Press.
