Never Fail in Preparedness

Usually, those who are samurai, even though they may be in however much poverty, in the end never fail in their preparedness. Also, even though they may establish themselves [successfully] in the world, they never lose a habitual resolve from unrestrained wealth or rank. They govern justly, benefit the people, and fulfill the people’s expections.
