The Three-Character Classic §1-3

"Formerly, the mother of Mencius
chose a neighborhood.
When her child would not learn,
she broke the shuttle from the loom.”

"昔孟母 择邻处 子不学 断机杼"

The story behind it:
Mencius’ mother moved her residence three times to avoid bad influence for her son.
She remonstrated to her son by ruining a piece a cloth she was weaving to dramatize the effect of lack of diligence on studies.

- Confucius. (San Zi Jing).
