《離婁下 - li lou ii》（共三十三章）
mencius said, 'shun was born in zhu feng, removed to fu xia, and died in ming tiao - a man near the wild tribes on the east. king wen was born in zhou by mount qi, and died in bi ying - a man near the wild tribes on the west. those regions were distant from one another more than a thousand li, and the age of the one sage was posterior to that of the other more than a thousand years. but when they got their wish, and carried their principles into practice throughout the middle kingdom, it was like uniting the two halves of a seal. when we examine those sages, both the earlier and the later, their principles are found to be the same.'
