논어_제19편 자장(子張; Zi Zhang)_11
子夏曰, “大德不踰閑, 小德出入可也.”
자하왈, “대덕불유한, 소덕출입가야.”
子夏曰, “大德不逾闲, 小德出入可也.”
자하가 말하였다. “큰 덕이 한계를 넘지 않으면, 작은 덕은 융통성을 두어도 괜찮다.”
Zixia said, If, in matters of great import to virtue, one never oversteps the proper bounds, in minor matters of virtue it is acceptable to be flexible.
Zi Xia said, “When a person does not transgress the boundary line in the great virtues, he may pass and repass it in the small virtues.”
