Uh-huh, gimme the proverb hurhur...I probably learnt it before.

The moral of the story ends up being that if orders are not followed/misunderstood..then the fault lies in the leaders. But if they are repeated and made very clear, and still the orders aren't followed, then the fault lies in those receiving the orders.
He ended up killing his student's two favorite women.

Was he alive during the Spring and Autumn period?

Lol, alright that was funny.....

I am thinking of a dead musician. It wasn't his forte, but a hobby, but the music he played became a trivial record.

Is he dead?

Do you know his name?

Will you tell me his name?

Is this thread dying?

Did he live in the 20th century?

Was his main thing completely unrelated to his music?

Did he have any physical disabilities (blind, deaf, can't walk, etc)?

And why exactly do you call Sun Tzu, Sunzi?

No to all except the middle one.

Sun Zi is how we spell his name in Han Yu Pinyin, Sun Tzu is Romanticised, a la Westernised.

Sports?

Was he real? (seeing as you previously did a fictional character)

did he protest against something?
