Oppression (47) signifies encounter.
There is no water in the lake: the image of oppression. Thus the superior man dedicates his life to follow his will.
Oppression. Success. Perseverance. The great man brings about good fortune. No blame. When one has something to say, it is not believed.Full text of Richard Wilhelm's 1924 translation by Cary F. Baynes
