三十六計/ San Shi Liu Ji – The Thirty six Stratagems Number 14

借屍還魂/Jie Shi Huan Hun – Borrow a Corpse to Reincarnate

原文:有用者,不可借;不能用者,求借。借不能用者而用之,匪我求童蒙,童蒙求我。

Original Text: Those who are useful cannot be borrowed; look to borrow those who are useless. Borrow the useless & exploit them, you don’t seek out the ignorant, they will seek you out.

解析:有所作為的,難以控制,不可加以利用;無所作為的,多依賴別人,會求助於我,完全可以控制和利用。利用無所作為的,不是我受別人支配,而是我去支配別人。

Analysis: To some extent achievers are difficult to control & cannot be exploited; the irresponsible, who excessively depend on others, are likely to ask you for help, they can be completely controlled & exploited. When taking advantage of this irresponsibility, don’t allow others to control you, rather you should control others.
