"Wine is a song, and life is a geometry." As an indispensable protagonist in Three Kingdoms, Cao Cao is referred to as generation of heroes by later generations. The portrayal of Cao Cao, whether in Romance of Three Kingdoms or Three Kingdoms, is treacherous and suspicious, and he is also a meritocrat.
So, in fact, many historical classics have been written about Cao Cao. Among them are countless idioms created with help of his stories. For example, "I'd rather bear burden of world than world bear me".
This sentence is actually taken from Romance of Three Kingdoms. At that time, Dong Zhuo tracked down Cao Cao and had no choice but to hide in Lu Boshe's house. For Lu Boshe, Cao Cao is an important figure.
So Lu Boshe prepared to sharpen his knife and slaughter cattle and sheep to entertain Cao Cao. But, unfortunately, sound of his knife sharpening was heard by Cao Cao. Cao Cao mistakenly thought that Lu Boshe was going to kill him, so he preemptively killed Lu Boshe and his family.
Of course, when Cao Cao found out that he committed suicide by mistake, even though he was extremely melancholic in his heart, he still said words, “I would rather have people of world blame people of world than people of world." me." It also fits perfectly with character of Cao Cao, who is not only cruel, but also too suspicious.
However, there are still many allusions to Cao Cao. Today's idiom about death was coined by Cao Cao, and saying is very literary, which makes many old people often talk about it without embarrassment.The story of Cao Cao
If you want to tell Cao Cao's story in detail, you can't finish it in three days and three nights. But it is worth mentioning a few important knots about Cao Cao.
It's well known that "Take an emperor to make princes", but they don't know that big boss behind this scene is actually Cao Cao. It is also manifestation of Cao Cao's wisdom in unifying north and establishing Cao Wei's regime.
Also, in Battle of Chibi, side defeated by Zhuge Liang and Zhou Yu was actually Cao Cao. The person who killed Ma Teng with "Yi Zhao's belt" was Cao Cao, and he was eventually killed because of this incident, and person who was forced to "cut off his beard and give up his clothes" was also Cao Cao.
Similarly, in Battle of Guandu, he defeated Yuan Shao at less cost and made Battle of Guandu one of famous wars in our country's history, where weak defeated strong. Hey also commanded Cao Cao.
Finally, in battle for Hanzhong, Cao Cao lost to Zhuge Liang. Perhaps Cao Cao realized that fight between him and Shu Han would be long. So from then on he never set out again until he died of an illness.
However, so many of events associated with Cao Cao are actually only a small part of his life. But it also made his life beautiful in eyes of world.
Although Cao Cao is not as generous and kind as Liu Bei, compared to Yuan Shao, Cao Cao's strategic thinking is superior. However, when it comes to running country and hiring people, Sun Quan actually has more say than Cao Cao.
It was also just such a group of heroes with their own strengths and weaknesses, united together, reached position of Three Kingdoms and opened up a wonderful story after end of Eastern Han Dynasty.
Heroes appear in difficult times. If you are talking about Cao Cao's lineage, then he is descendant of a bureaucrat, but if you want to talk about descendants of such a bureaucrat, it can really make Cao Cao bear burden for his whole life.
We all know that although Cao Cao's background is not bad, he is descendant of a eunuch. It also made Cao Cao, who later dominated party, pay a heavy price to get rid of embarrassment.
Even so, it had no effect on Cao Cao's power and majesty. On contrary, with his efforts he also allowed himself to enter political field.Cao Cao's idioms about death
It's a pity that Cao Cao was a generation of heroes and finally died of illness in first month of twenty-fifth year of Jian'an. In fact, before Cao Cao died of an illness, he was already using literary vocabulary to describe death, and he also created an idiom because of this, that is, after a hundred years.
When talking about origin of this "one hundred years later", we must mention Battle of Guandu. Everyone knows that Cao Cao defeated Yuan Shao at Battle of Guandu, but little is known about specific events of that battle.
In fact, although Cao Cao at time sought to unify north, he did not have many troops. However, Cao Cao knew that if he wanted to accomplish his great deed, he would have to agree with Yuan Shao.
At this time, Yuan Shao was very powerful because he occupied lands of Yanzhao all year round. Compared to Cao Cao, who occupies Qingzhou, the winning percentage is quite high.
Even so, Yuan Shao never expected Cao Cao to stake all of his family property for his own ambitions and start a war with Yuan Shao in Guangdu.
Eventually, Cao Cao also defeated Yuan Shao with his only soldiers and horses on Xu Yu's advice. Such an outcome, I'm afraid not even Yuan Shao himself thought of it.
After winning Battle of Guandu, Cao Cao looked at soldiers who fought for him in front of him.
Such a scene couldn't help but make Cao Cao sigh, so Cao Cao created article "Jun Qiao's Order". Recall that Cao Cao walked all way, and generals following him were killed one by one, and soldiers under his command were already changing wave after wave.
Thus, in this "Qiao Military Order", Cao Cao wrote such a phrase, "Soul and spirit, why do I hate this in a hundred years." Among them, "a hundred years later" becomes an idiom that people use to describe death.
In fact, Cao Cao intended to create "Jun Qiao Ling" in memory of those who died because of following him. Cao Cao wanted to build temples for these people to worship and honor their memory.
However, Cao Cao's words "unintentional planting of willows and willows will create shade" also made future generations remember idiom "one hundred years later".
In fact, before Zhuge Liang's death, there was a similar saying: "Who will be successor to prime minister in a hundred years?" This phrase was spoken by Liu Chan when he sent Li Fu to visit seriously ill Zhuge Liang.Conclusion
"The poor bones are collected in a lonely grave, and all generals have done battle merits." The achievements of a whole generation of heroes are virtually inseparable from soldiers and generals who followed him and fought on battlefield.
You know, in that war-torn era, you might have talked and laughed for one second, and then you had to go to battlefield when military order came. Especially it can be said that human life in that period was light as a feather.
How many people are ready to leave their homes and become victims of war. This was not only due to current situation at time, but it was only a last resort.
"The drunk lies on battlefield, Mr. Mo Xiao, how many people fought in ancient times." This is glory of that era of heroes, as well as grief of ordinary people of that era.
