Introduction: sometimes history is like this. The longer time goes by, the more clearly some famous people appear in front of us. I'm referring to a generation of heroes. Many of his stories soon came to my mind when I mentioned the name. From the little things of this historical giant, we admire his great achievements and great talents, and at the same time, we also feel his true gentleman and true temperament, which will make us deeply moved up to now. Speaking of his story, we can't get around his forbearance.
A young monarch should be vigorous and heroic. At the beginning of his succession, he needs three new officials to take office. What's more, he is the king who holds the fate of Chu state and the lives of his officials. However, the impression he gave us was that he spent three years in the drunken and gentle countryside. His father, King Mu of Chu, was the king of Patricide. He reigned for 12 years. Although he was ruled by iron fists, it was hard to eliminate the disaster left behind. His family might break out at any time. In addition, the powerful officials were on the side. If the head of the family was now making Yin Dou Yuejiao, it was like the beginning of the Qing Dynasty. From the decline of the monarchy to the conflagration of the two families, the contradiction directly refers to the monarchy, taking the monarch of his country as a hostage. So three years before King Zhuang of Chu succeeded to the throne, he used to hold on to his left and hold on to his right.
A man found that the king of Chu Zhuang was not a fatuous king. He saw the essence of the king of Chu through several small things. This man is the forefather of Wuju. Wu Ju noticed that when the king of Chu went hunting, when he saw that the brave hunted tigers and leopards, he would praise "I know their bravery". When he saw that the brave divided their prey equally, he would praise "I know their benevolence". Wu Ju was surprised to find that the real intention of Chu king's forbearance was to find available people and try to restore his power. Wu Ju was tempted by the king of Chu, and a famous dialogue between the monarch and the minister came into being in history. According to many ancient documents, such as the Chu family, Han Feizi Yu Lao, and Chunqiu Chongyan, it is recorded that: (Wu Ju) said: 'there are birds in Fu, but they don't fly or sing for three years. What kind of birds are they?' Zhuang Wang said: 'if they don't fly for three years, they will soar to the sky; if they don't sing for three years, they will be amazing. "We can imagine that Wu Ju, a loyal minister, took a chance to see the king of Chu, which took a lot of thought. At that time, King Zhuang of Chu only indulged in singing and dancing and wine pool.
He was drunk watching the music and dance. When he saw Wu Ju, he asked: "does Doctor Wu want to drink with different valley or watch the music and dance together?" Wu Ju shook his head, and said: "I was baffled by a riddle, and I couldn't guess it at all, so I want to ask the king for advice. "As soon as the king of Chu Zhuang was interested, drinking and listening to songs all day was also boring. It's really good to have some riddles as spiritual nourishment, just to refresh his mind. Then he asked with some interest, "ha ha, what riddle is so difficult to guess? Let me try it.". Wu Ju said, "the riddle is that there are big birds in the capital of Chu. They live in the court and wear colorful clothes for three years. It's hard to understand. Why? 'the king guessed. He didn't sing or fly. What kind of bird is it? "After hearing this, King Zhuang of Chu looked at Doctor Wu, as if to say, I knew you were the minister I wanted to be responsible for, so he smiled and said," I guessed it! It's not an ordinary bird. The bird flies to the sky without flying for three years; if it does not sing for three years, it will be amazing. Please come back, wait and see! "So the emperor and his officials matched the code with the secret code. Wu Ju left in a down-to-earth mind, and he will have a place in the future.
There is another version of this story. Chunyu Kun said to the king of Qi Wei, Yiyin said, "there are big birds in the country. If you don't fly or sing for three years, what does the king know about this bird?" Wang said, "if you don't fly, you will fly to the sky; if you don't sing, you will be amazed.". "We can't judge who is the originator. From Wu's tone of voice, it seems that there is a story first. This has nothing to do with this article. After a while, another loyal minister could not sit down. This is Su Cong. He saw that the king of Chu ignored the government for three years, and did not issue a number order. All day long, he only knew how to patrol and hunt, buried himself in the middle, and died: "if anyone dares to remonstrate, there will be no amnesty!" he thought that as a state minister, he should consider for the state, not for personal safety. He risked his life to remonstrate. King Zhuang of Chu saw the man who dared to eat leopard's gall: "don't you know my ban?" fortunately, this man not only had courage but also some strategies. He invented the historical cry and remonstrance.
When King Zhuang of Chu saw that a man of this age was crying like a child, he asked curiously, "I didn't intend to punish my husband, how could I cry?" but Su Cong said the shocking words: "I cry for my death, but I am more sad for my country's subjugation. "This confused the king of Chu. He asked in surprise that the state of Chu was not dead, nor was Mr. Chu dead. Why. Su Cong pointed to the king of Chu: "three years ago! The king only knew about lewdness and gave death orders. He was not allowed to give advice. Isn't that the omen of his country's subjugation? If I come to die, I can get the reputation of a loyal king for thousands of years, and the king will be immortal.". "Then, the loyal minister shouted," come on, kill if you want! "Maybe it's time to endure, maybe it's the malpractice of the reform of Chu state that has found a strategy, or it's time to find the right person. The king of Chu burst out laughing: "you really want to do something for the sake of the country, I don't understand!" the king of Chu really fulfilled the sentence of "if you don't sing, you will be amazed.". When he pulled out his sword and went out of his sheath, he killed more than 100 powerful officials who despised the king's power as a crime, and accordingly promoted and reused loyal officials headed by Wu Ju and Su Cong to check and balance the power of Yin Dou and Yue Jiao, who were powerful, so the contradiction between the king's power and the ruo'ao family broke out irreconcilably.
