Zeng Xi said: "In late spring, when spring dresses are ready, with five or six capped men, and six or seven lads, I should like to bathe in the River Yi, enjoy the breeze and the Wu-yu altar, then chant all the way home."
The Master said with a deep sigh "I am for Dian!"
When the three gentlemen left, Zeng Xi stayed behind. Zeng Xi said "What do you think of the three gentlemen's statements?"
The Master said: "Well, every one spoke his mind, that is all."
Zeng Xi said: "Sir, why did you smile at Iou?"
