나는 군자되기는 턱없이 부족하다. 그래도 늘 구사(九思)하고자 노력한다. 그 노력이 차마 미치지 못하는데, 본성이 '날라리' 과인가? 요즈음에는 구유(九遊)에 놀아난다. 나가서 구경하고, 걸을 때는 노래하고, 머물면 하모니카 불고, 집에 들어와 그림 그리고, 서서 붓글씨 쓰고, 친구랑 골프치고, 밤에는 책을 읽고, 식구랑 먹을 것 챙기고, 아내에게 요리 배우고...., 공자님을 패러디하여 이름도 지어 본다. '장수구유(長壽九遊)'라고. 하하하.

16‧10 孔子曰: “君子有九思, 視思明, 聽思聰, 色思溫, 貌思恭, 言思忠, 事思敬, 疑思問, 忿思難, 見得思義,”
(공자왈: “군자유구사, 시사명, 청사총, 색사온, 모사공, 언사충, 사사경, 의사문, 분사난, 견득사의,”)
Confucius said, "The superior man has nine things which are subjects with him of thoughtful consideration. In regard to the use of his eyes, he is anxious to see clearly. In regard to the use of his ears, he is anxious to hear distinctly. In regard to his countenance, he is anxious that it should be benign. In regard to his demeanor, he is anxious that it should be respectful. In regard to his speech, he is anxious that it should be sincere. In regard to his doing of business, he is anxious that it should be reverently careful. In regard to what he doubts about, he is anxious to question others. When he is angry, he thinks of the difficulties his anger may involve him in. When he sees gain to be got, he thinks of righteousness."
