To draw a cake to satisfy hunger



Lu Yu lived in the Kingdom of Wei during the Three Kingdoms periods. He was orphanedat the age of ten.

必威app软件 三国时代,魏国有个叫卢毓(Lú Yù )的人,很小的时候就失去了父母和两个哥哥。

So he undertook the task of supporting his sister-in-law and nephew through a period of extreme hardship.Meanwhile, he also studied hard. He was praised all around for his noble deeds and depth of knowledge.


Later he became an official and still worked hard and put forth valuable advice to the emperor, so the emperor placed great trust in him.

必威app软件 后来,卢毓做了官,仍然勤恳工作,经常给皇帝提出好建议,得到皇帝的信任。

At that time, the selection process of government officials depended on the recommendation of powerful and influential men.


These men would always recommend famous persons who were all mouth and no action which displeased the emperor.


One time, the emperor asked Lu Yu to recommend an official and said to him: "the selection of government officials should not rely solely on one's fame which is just like a cake drawn on the ground, while it may be good to look at it does not satisfy one's hunger."


This story gave rise to the idiom "draw a cake to satisfy hunger. " Now it is used to describe someone who uses fantasy to satisfy oneself and means that empty reputation is of no practical value.



Your action is just like drawing a cake to satisfy hunger, which has no practical effect.

必威app软件 你这种做法只是画饼充饥,没有任何实际作用。
