EDIT: The correct phrase is 人之于耳，要听即听，不要听则否，于目亦然，何独于心而不由我乎
There is this quote from Lu Jiuyuan. I am not sure if my translation is correct:
"With their hearing people may not listen if they want and if they do not want to, they do not. The same is with sight, so how could it be that only the mind cannot do it like that?”
I am particularly unsure if I got 不要即则否 phrase right. Will be greatful for any suggestions.
