LiSi and mice
In B.C.250, LiSi,26 years old, young like me, was very poor. He was a secretary in a barn. There was a very big and deep toilet beside the barn and there were a lot of mice in the toilet.
One day, LiSi went to the WC to shit. Bang! A pile of stool dropped into the cesspit. Hearing the noise, these thin and small mice which stole the stool, panicked and run away in a hurry. Seeing these running mice, LiSi thought of other mice in the barn, which were fat and with smooth fur, and which never sacred for people’s reaching.
LiSi thought：“Why do these mice in the barn differ in the toilet?”He argued that human liked mice, some of whom lived in a toilet and some of whom lived in a barn. So he thought a man should live like the mice in a barn. Thinking this, LiSi decided to resign. Then he called on the famous and great scholar of Confucianism XunZi to study the kingcraft and became his pet. Finally he became the Prime Minister of Qin.
