In the Spring and Autumn Period, Wu Zixu was persecuted by King Ping of Chu, he hid in Shaoguan, yet couldn’t leave because the military was guarding at the border. Due to anxiety and worry, his hair and beard suddenly turned white in one night. He passed the security check because of the huge change in appearance. He usually crossed wildlands on his way to escape, and he would hide as soon as he heard the wind or the rustle of grass. 


[Definition] It refers to a slight and gentle movement.
