Today, I will lead you to learn Chinese idiom - 南辕北辙. This term comes from an old Chinese story. It is recorded that the emperor of Wei station wanted to attack Handan. While Ji Liang heard of this, he told to the emperor, "Today, while I came back, I saw a man who wanted to achieve Chu Station. However, he was driving towards north at that time. I told him that Chu Station is in the south and his direction was wrong. He thought that his horse was good. However, the better his horse is, the further the distance between Chu Station and him is. Now, if you want to be the leader of the world and gain the trust of other nations, you should not take advantage of your troops. On the contrary, you should improve your relationship with other countries."
 
南辕北辙魏王想要攻打邯郸,季梁听说这件事后,半路返回,来不及抻平皱缩的衣服和去除头上的尘土,去谒见魏王说:“今天我回来的时候,在大路上遇见一个人,面朝北面驾着车,他告诉我说:‘我想到楚国去。’我说:‘您到楚国去,为什么往北走呢?’他说:‘我的马很精良。’我说:‘即使你的马精良,但是这不是去往楚国的路啊!’他说:‘我的路费很多。’我说:‘即使你的路费多,但这不是去楚国的道路啊。’他说:‘我的马夫善于驾车。’这几样越好,却让他离楚国越远!现在大王行动想成为霸王,举止想取信于天下。依仗魏国的强大,军队的精良,而去攻打邯郸,以使土地扩展,名位尊贵,大王这样的行动越多,那么距离称王的事业就越来越远了。这就好像想到去楚国却向北走一样。”
