There was an artisan of the state of Yue who was good at making boats. Because of his excellent work, the king trusted him very much. He was regarded as a great master of boat making and got munificent treatment.
One year later, this artisan said to the king, I can not only make a boat but also drive a boat very well. "The king was glad to hear that and appointed him to drive boats. In the war between the state of Wu and Yue, the boat that the artisan drove was sunk, and he was drowned. When the news got spreaded throughout the country, all the Yue people felt sorry for him.
