Seclusion for a Modern Sophist

Dwelling_in_the_Fuchun_Mountains_(first_half)

At fifteen, I set my heart on learning.  At thirty, I was firmly established.  At forty, I had no more doubts.  At fifty, I knew the will of Heaven.  At sixty, I was ready to listen to it.  At seventy, I could follow my heart’s desire without transgressing what is right.

I need only remember my place.
