Hui of Liuxia was a judge who had been dismissed from office on a number of occasions. People said, "Can't you leave?" He said, "If I render service to people while on the straight (moral) path, how do you know that I will not be dismissed again after going somewhere else? If I render service to people while on a crooked (moral) path, why would I need to leave the homeland of my parents?"
