The Importance of Not Abandoning People

Although there are wise and foolish people, there is no one each lacking at least one skill or two. When combining (their skills) to create a success, without a doubt it will come near the point of being perfect. Also, in teaching this to people for many years this has nearly been my actual experience. There is nothing more than the importance of not abandoning people.

26日人物を棄遺せざるの要術
人賢愚ありと雖も、各々一二の才能なきはなし、湊合して大成する時は必ず全備する所あらん。是れ亦年来人をして実験する所なり。人物を棄遺せざるの要術、是れより外復たあることなし。
安政二年六月一日「福堂策」
