  "i said: 'if you want to go to the state of chu, you should go south. why are you going north? you are going the wrong way!'
  "he said: 'my horse is big and strong. it can run as fast as flying. it doesn't matter to run a little more.'
  "i told him: 'though your horse is good, you are going in the wrong direction.'
  "he said: 'it doesn't matter. i have lots of money.'
  "i told him again: 'though you have lots of money, this is not the road to the state of chu.'
  "he said: 'it doesn't matter. my driver is good and strong.'
  "finally i told him: 'though your driver is good and strong, this is not the road to the state of chu."
  the king of wei blurted out: "alas, this man is too obstinate. he doesn't realize that if his direction is wrong, the better he is equipped, the farther he would be away from his destination."

  a fox and a monkey were on the road together, and fell into a dispute as to which of the two was the better born.
  they kept it up for some time, till they came to a place where the road passed through a cemetery full of monuments, when the monkey stopped and looked about him and gave a great sigh.
  "why do you sigh?" said the fox. the monkey pointed to the tombs and replied, "all the monuments that you see here were put up in honour of my forefathers, who in their day were eminent men."
  the fox was speechless for a moment, but quickly recovering he said, "oh! don't stop at any lie, sir; you're quite safe: i'm sure none of your ancestors will rise up and expose you."
