Excerpt from the book

Marking the Boat to Locate a Lost Sword

In the Spring and Autumn Period, a man of the state of Cho was ferrying across Yangja River. When, by mistake, his sword dropped into the water, he immediately carved a notch on the side pf the moving boat to mark the place where his weapon was lost. "What's the use of making a notch there?" asked a fellow passenger. The man replied, "That's where my sword dropped into the river. I'll jump into the water from the same place to find my sword when the boat moors." And that was just what he did when the boat got to the other side of the river. However hard he tried, he could not locate his sword.
