成语——大公无私

Meaning of the Idiom

da gong wu si(Perfectly impartial

During the Spring and Autumn Period (770-476 BC), a very noble official caled Qi Huangyang lived in the State of Jin. One day, the king summoned him to court and asked, “Now that the magistrate position of Nanyang county is vacant, who do you think is suitable for the post?”

“Xie Hu is the right man for the job,” Qi replied without hesitation.

Surprised, the king asked, “Did you say Xie Hu? I thought he’s your enemy. Why did you recommend him to take such an important position?”

Smiling, Qi Huangyang said, “Your Majesty didn’t ask me my personal opinions o Xie Hu. You simply asked me who I thought would be competent for the position. Therefore I recommended Xie Hu.

The king followed Qi’s advice and made Xie Hu magistrate of Nanyang county. And sure enough, Xie Hu administered the county very well and won respect from local people and his colleagues.

Some days later, the king again asked Qi Huangyang for his opinions. This time, the king was trying to find a suitable candidate for a court judge position. Qi Huangyiang recommended Qi Wu for the job. Once again, the king was surprised again by the recommendation because Qi Wu was the son of Qi Huangyang. The king asked: “Who do you recommend your son? Aren’t you afraid people will gossip?”

Qi Huangyang replied, “Your Majesty, you asked me who was the most capable person for the position of a judge, and I think Qi Wu is.”

Although the king was a bit hesitant about making Qi Wu the judge, he nevertheless gave him the position. As it turned out, Qi Wu was an upright and talented judge, who people GREatly respected.

Qi Huangyang’s actions were praised by Confucius who said, “Qi Huangyang was right. He recommended people according to their abilities and talents, not because of personal sentiments, not because of fearing others’ gossip. Therefore, people like Qi Huangyang are referred to as people “without selfish motives”.

From Confucious’ comment came the idiom “Unselfish”. Anyone who handles affairs fairly and impartially can be described as “Unselfish; Perfectly impartial”.

大公无私

[dà gōng wú sī],比喻一心为公,毫无私心;常用来歌颂人的优良品质和秉公处理事情。

出自《管子·形势解》。

成语——杯水车薪

Meaning of the Idiom

bei shui che xin(trying to put out a blazing cartload of faggots with a cup of water)

Mencius was a famous thinker in the Warring States Period. He recommended the political idea of governing the country by benevolence to the vassal states, but no one adopted it. His students asked him the same question.

Mencius replied:

It is no doubt that benevolence can overcome inhumanity, just as water can extinguish fire. But now some advocates of benevolence seem to use a small glass of water to save the flame of a wagon full of firewood. If any one thus thinks that water cannot extinguish fire, he is in the same class as a tyrannical person, and will lose what little benevolence he has had.

During the Spring and Autumn Period (707 – 476 B.C.), Duke Xian of the State of Jin Wanted to expand his position of strength and sphere of influence. Therefore he would like to send his troops to destroy the State of Guo on the pretest that the State of Guo often encroached on the borders of the State of Jin. But there was a third state, the State of Yu, between the State of Jin and the State of Guo, and the Jin army had to cross the State of Yu before it could reach the State of Guo .

“How can my army cross the State of Yu without a hitch?” Duke Xian of the State of Jin asked his ministers. Xun Xi , one of the ministers, said, “The monarch of the State of Yu is short – sighted and covets small advantages. If we give him priceless precious stones and fine horses, it is not unlikely that he will allow our army to pass through his country. ” Seeing that Duke Xian of the State of Jin was a little bit grudging, Xun Xi continued to say, “The State of Yu and the State of Guo are neighbor stated as closely related as lips and teeth. The State of Yu cannot exist independently if the state of Guo is destroyed. Your precious stones and fine horses are just left in the care of the monarch of the State of Yu.” So Duke Xian of the State of Jin accepted Xun Xi’s plan.

When the monarch of Yu saw the precious gifts, he was wild with joy, and readily promised to let the Jin army pass through his state. Hearing the news, Gong Zhiqi, one of the ministers as the State of Yu, hastened to admonish the monarch, saying,” That won’t do. For the State of Yu and the State of Guo are neighbor states as closely related as lips and teeth. Our two small states are interdependent, and can help catch other when problems crop up .If the State of Guo were destroyed, it would be difficult for our State of Yu to continue to exist.

As the common saying goes, if the lips are gone ,the teeth will be cold, The teeth can hardly be kept if the lips are gone.
