且古之君子,过则改之

且古之君子,过则改之;今之君子,过则顺之。古之君子,其过也,如日月之食,民皆见之;及其更也,民皆仰之。今之君子,岂徒顺之,又从为之辞。——孟子


古代的君子,有了过错,随即改正;今天的君子,有了过错,竟将错就错。古代君子的过错,好像天上的日蚀、月蚀,百姓都能看的很清楚;当他改正错误的时候,人们都抬头望着。今天的君子,不仅将错就错,并且还编造出一套假道理为自己辩护。——孟子


When the ancient gentleman made a mistake, he would correct it immediately.  In contrast, when the current gentleman makes a mistake, he leaves it uncorrected and even makes the best of it.  The ancient gentleman’s mistake was like the solar eclipse or the lunar eclipse; the common people all see it very clearly.  When he was correcting his mistake, all people raised their heads to see it.  The current gentleman not only leaves his mistake uncorrected and makes the best of it, but also fabricates a set of false reasons to defend himself. ——Mencius
