指桑罵槐/Zhi Sang Ma Huai – Point at the Mulberry, Curse the Locust

原文:大凌小者,警以誘之。剛中而應,行險而順。

Original Text: The great insult inferiors, using a warning in order to persuade them. Strength leads to agreement, rugged behavior leads to obedience. 

解析:強大的懾服弱小的,須以警戒的方法來誘導。剛強適度,可以獲得擁戴;堅毅果敢,可以令人信服。

Analysis: For the strong to scare the weak into submission it is necessary to use a warning as a means of bringing them around. Facing them with an unyielding manner can obtain their allegiance; resolute courage can cause them to believe.
