"Once when two disciples were standing by Confucius, the teacher asked each one to express his ambition. One disciple said, "I would like a carriage and clothes like those of my companions, and not to worry about them wearing out." The other disciple said, "I would like to avoid taking pride in good and passing on toil to others." One of the disciples then asked Confucius his wish. The teacher said, "To comfort the elderly, deal faithfully with friends, and care for the young.""
