4 Youth

The Statement of the second hexagram

A youth must be steadfast.

I do not seek the naive youth.

The naive youth seeks me.

At the first divination, I explain,

but after three times, it is irritating.

Annoyed, I explain no further.

Nevertheless, a gainful omen.
 
 

The Image of the first hexagram

Mountains in the middle
of the earth: humility.
The wise person
takes from the ample
to add to the meager,
weighing and balancing
fairly.
 
 

The Image of the second hexagram

A spring gushes
below a mountain:
the naive youth.
The noble one nourishes virtue
with determination.
