One Eternal Path

See clearly all viewpoints, listen to all discernment, is the wisdom of the ancient sages. Furthermore there are two paths. They are nothing beyond associating with those of intelligence under Heaven and reading the books under Heaven… Lords with resolve have one eternal path which leads to the necessity of seeing clearly and listening to discernment, then secretly offering admiration.
The Sixth Year of Kaei, August. “Private words for Generals.”

15日千古一道
四目を明にし、四聡を達すとは、古聖の明訓なり。而して其の道二あり。天下の賢能に交はり、天下の書籍を読むに過ぎず。(中略)有志の君、千古一道、要は目を明にし聡を達するに帰すると、竊かに感嘆し奉る所なり。
嘉六年八月「将及私言」
