Gathering Men of Ability

Gathering able men is a necessary task today if the country is to prosper. Then, if able men are gathered for a short time, even without expecting the country to prosper, it will. There is nothing equal to gathering able men and employing them according to their abilities.
The Fifth Year of Ansei, December. “Discussion on School, Addition, In the Workshop.”

如月
1日人材を聚むるは
人材を聚めて国勢を振ふは今日の要務たり。而して人材一たび聚まらば、即ち国勢振ふを期せずして振はん。人材を聚むるは其の器に随つて之れを叙用するに如くはなし。
安政五年十二月「学校を論ず 附、作場」
