With Resolve

Those who have heavy responsibilities, it is not enough to rely on the talents one has. It is not enough to rely on the wisdom one has. Without doubt, one should lead with a feeling of resolve. Following this diligently, one will gain the ability.
The third year of Kouka, “Preface sent to Matsumura Bunshou”

18日志を以て
夫れ重きを以て任と為す者、才を持て恃と為す足らず。知を以て恃と為すに足らず。必ずや志を以て気を率ゐ、黽勉事に従ひて而る後可なり。
弘化三年「松村文祥を送る序」
