28 Great Excess

The Statement of the first hexagram

The ridgepole sags.

Gain by having a place to go.

Continue.

The changing lines

The second line:
A withered trunk bursts with fresh vetch.

An old man takes a wife. Nothing but gain.
The sixth line:
Fording, wading, head submerged.

Misfortune, but without fault.

33 Withdrawal

The Statement of the second hexagram

Withdrawal. Continue.
Small gains in persisting.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

The lake overwhelms
the trees: great excess.
The noble one stands alone
without fear,
and can withdraw
from the world
without sorrow.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

A mountain under heaven:
withdrawal.
The noble one keeps
distant from vile people,
not with hatred,
but with dignity.
