Mencius - Book 7, Part 2, Chapter 17

Mencius said, 'When Confucius was leaving Lû, he said, "I will set out by-and-by;" this was the way in which to leave the State of his parents. When he was leaving Ch'î, he strained off with his hand the water in which his rice was being rinsed, took the rice, and went away; this was the way in which to leave a strange State.'
