Citações Yi Hwang

„The ancients see me not, nor I, the ancients,
Though I see the ancients not, the Way they trod is before me,
Their Way before me, can I but follow.“

„How do the green mountains through the ages remain green?
How do the flowing waters day and night keep flowing?
Let us not cease either but throught the ages remain green.“

Twelve Songs of Dosan, 靑山ᄂᆞᆫ엇뎨ᄒᆞ야萬古애프르르며 流水ᄂᆞᆫ엇뎨ᄒᆞ야晝夜애긋디아니ᄂᆞᆫ고 우리도그치디마라萬古常靑호리라

Not even wise men can be perfect; perhaps the way is difficult.
Easy or difficult, between the two, I do not feel the advance of age.“
