Something of the quality of the teacher-disciple Disciple of the Ch 'eng Brothers 19 relationship that characterized the Tao-hsiieh fellowship comes across in this anecdote that became well known among later Confucians.

How much more so when one must depend upon study of the Analects text, after so many centuries of "misunderstanding"!
