The well (48) signifies connection.
Above the wood is water: the image of the well. Thus the superior man encourages the people at work and exhorts them to help each other.
The well. One may change the town, but the well cannot be changed. It neither decreases nor increases. They come and go and draw from the well. If one has almost reached the fountain's water, but the rope does not go all the way, or the mug breaks, this brings misfortune.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
