Confucius is a famous educator in ancient China. He has taught more than 3,000 apprentices.
Among them, a disciple who is very disliked by Confucius is called zǎi yǔ, zǎi yǔ has the advantage of being able to speak eloquently. The disadvantage is that he can speak casually, and because he often offends the teacher.
When Confucius was preparing for class, he found that zǎi yǔ did not arrive. He immediately called the apprentice to the home of zǎi yǔ. When Confucius’s apprentice went to the home of zǎi yǔ, he found that zǎi yǔ was still asleep.
When Confucius heard the apprentice’s report, he couldn’t bear it. He said, “The dead wood can’t be carved, and the wall of the dung can’t be smashed.” This sentence means that the rotten wood does not have the value of carving, and the stone in the pit is no longer necessary. paint
This sentence has been very difficult to hear from Confucius. I did not expect it to become a famous sentence. It has been circulated for more than 2,000 years. Now there are many teachers who like to use this sentence to describe students who do not act.
