<易經>是故君子居則觀其象而玩其辭, 動則觀其變而玩其占, 是以自天祐之, 吉無不利. <The Text of King>Therefore the superior man, when living quietly, contemplates the emblems and studies the explanations of them, when initiating any movement, he contemplates the changes( that are made in divining), and studies the prognostications from them. Thus his help extended to him from Heaven; there will be good fortune, and advantage in every movement.
