No Place for Resenting Heaven and Blaming Others

Even if you are poor and lowly, even if you face severe hardship, be calm in managing yourself. There is no place for resenting Heaven or blaming others.
The Second Year of Ansei, The Ninth of August. “Minutes of the Head Lecturer.”

21日天を怨み人を尤むる所なし
己れを処するは貧賤の極り、艱難の甚しきと云へども、雍々是れに処り、一も天を怨み人を尤むる所なし。
安政二年八月六日「講孟箚記」
