Father Being Fathers, Children Being Children

Disorder is not war, peace is not abundance (of wealth). Lords being lords, vassals being vassals. Father being fathers, children being children. All under heaven is right.
The Second Year of Ansei. “Minutes of the Head Lecturer”

6日父父たり子子たり
乱は兵戦にも非ず、平は豊饒にも非ず、君君たり臣臣たり、父父たり子子たり、天下平かなり。
安政二年「講孟箚記」
