11. The Nine Situations
Chang Yu quotes his favorite Wei Liao Tzu (ch. 3): "If one man were to run amok with a sword in the market-place, and everybody else tried to get our of his way, I should not allow that this man alone had courage and that all the rest were contemptible cowards. The truth is, that a desperado and a man who sets some value on his life do not meet on even terms."
Chang Yu says: "If they are in an awkward place together, they will surely exert their united strength to get out of it."blog comments powered by Disqus
