In the warring states period, a man named Le Yang left home to pursue his studies after his wife’s persuasion. One day, someone knocked the door, when his wife was weaving. She opened the door and saw Le Yang.
” Le Yang, have you finished your study?” she asked him.
” I’ve learned something, but I’m not finished yet.” he said . ” I was feeling homesick, so I came back to see you.”
Upon hearing these words, his wife went to the loom and cut the half done cloth in half.
” Hey, you-” Le yang began.
” The cloth is woven thread by thread. Why did you cut it and waste your efforts? You returned home before finishing your study. It’s Ban Tu Er Fei.” his wife said.
Le Yang felt ashamed, and left his wife once again. This time, he finished his studies.
“Ban Tu Er Fei” refers to quitting halfway without getting to the end.
