He served in a series of minor posts, but his sister's death, as well as disgust at the corruption and infighting of the Jin Court prompted his resignation, convincing him that life was too short to compromise on his principles; as he put it himself, he would not "bow like a servant in return for five bushels of grain" ("??????" has entered common usage to mean "swallowing one's pride in exchange for a meagre existence". 'Five bushels of grain' refers to the salary of a low-ranking official). He lived in retirement for his last 22 years.
