논어_제15편 위령공(衛靈公; Wei Ling Gong)_30
子曰, “吾嘗終日不食, 終夜不寢, 以思無益, 不如學也.”
자왈, “오상종일불식, 종야불침, 이사무익, 불여학야.”
子曰, “吾尝终日不食, 终夜不寝, 以思无益, 不如学也.”
공자께서 말씀하셨다. “나는 일찍이 종일토록 먹지 않고 밤새도록 자지 않고서 사색을 해 보았지만, 유익함은 없었고, 공부하는 것만 못했다.”
The Master said, “I have been the whole day without eating, and the whole night without sleeping; occupied with thinking. It was of no use. The better plan is to learn.”
The Master said, I have spent whole days without eating, whole nights without sleeping, in order to think. It was useless – not like study!
