  1. The water from the lake is so dirty… it is enough to clean my headpiece: It’s the lyrics to a famous ancient political chinese song during the spring and autumn period. The first half of the song has been interpreted by historians to mean when someone who is innocent will always be innocent, just like even if the lake water is dirty, it cannot make my pale feet black/dirty. Because of the use of the term “dirty”, it’s also insinuating the “dirty” world that the innocent is living in. This was also confirmed in a teaching by the chinese scholar Mengzi.  The second half of the song has been interpreted to mean even if a gentleman falls on hard times/removed from his position in court (as the headpiece of a man at this time represents his position in society, only the rich and court officials have a proper headpiece) he should still behave properly and morally, as the water in this instance represents the washing of his position. I think it’s the perfect song to describe what Teacher Yu is feeling. I think he is innocent but what do you think?
  2. The back of my hand and palm of my hand are both my flesh: A chinese saying that is often used by someone who is stuck in a difficult position, usually when their friends/family are in a fight and it’s difficult to take a side.
  3. Food/vegetable: In chinese the dishes (the food that is shared and consumed along with rice) is the same character and you only know which one it is depending on the context.
  4. Once the words of a gentleman leaves his mouth, 4 horses cannot chase it back: It’s a chinese saying that means once you make a vow, you cannot break it.
  5. Boring/hot blooded smoulder: A play with words that doesn’t make any sense in english. Not sure if you understand what I mean by hot blooded smoulder but it’s a chinese slang phrase that means someone who is cold on the surface but passionate inside.
