Master 0sifu Folktale: King Xuan’s archery

King Xuan of the state of Qi was fond of archery, and he liked to hear others’ flattery on his ability to stretch tight bows.



The tensile strength of his bows was only three shi. But every time he asked his attendants to try his bows, these men pulled the bow half open and pretended that they could not stretch any more. They declared in chorus that nobody without more than nine shi of strength could stretch it open, and only Your Majesty could it, because you are so mighty.



King Xuan never doubted their words till his death.
