take it allegorically - thats my way of getting on with life Smiley

'grasshopper' is from kung-fu-Kane (David Carradine, who just died very mysteriously in a hotel room BTW), a TV series about a western guy who returns to the US after growing up in nepal or somwhere like that and wanders small town-to small town with someone chasing him but always doing good with his eastern buddhist training and martial arts skills.... he has flash backs to his training as a child when he was called 'grasshopper' by the guru.

So 'grasshhopper' is neophyte.  So far so good.

'open your eyes' or 'the blow of the fist will otherwise kiss your cheeks'.
OK, I'm Huh too Cheesy

Sounds like he is saying open your eyes so that you can avoid the sting of love...  but that means running away I think.

OK V, help us out here


now you sound like the I-Ching or E-D=Ching.

The General Meaning

M?ng (indicates that in the case which it presupposes) there will be progress and success. I do not (go and) seek the youthful and inexperienced, but he comes and seeks me. When he shows (the sincerity that marks) the first recourse to divination, I instruct him. If he apply a second and third time, that is troublesome; and I do not instruct the troublesome. There will be advantage in being firm and correct

I haven't heard Meng being quoted for a long time, the ancient classics have become somewhat disbanded by the west especially the book of changes, book of poetry and shang shu

The rites of Zhou, Chu Ci, Yili, the book of changes, book of poetry and shang shu are all part of the ancient classics. More broadly speaking, Chinese classic texts may refer to texts, be they written in vernacular Chinese or in classical Chinese, that existed before 1912, when the last imperial Chinese dynasty, the Qing Dynasty, fell.

A good place to research is http://chinese.dsturgeon.net/text.pl?node=3925&if=en

Have fun, it will keep you busy for a while, A part I had to study was Sun Tzu on The Art of War

wonderful as the advice may bein some of these thext, the problem was they (and the whole of chinese society) became dogma making it very difficult for social and economic evolution.... there was some point to Mao's cultural revolution (even though it threw out the baby as well as teh bathwater)

I agree, it is good to read about cultures/civilisations and to learn what they did right but foremost what they did wrong. A to rigid civil structure leads to decent and unrest, it promotes classes and forget to care about the vulnerable.
