Shouldn’t Recklessly Become a Teacher

If you want to follow the way of a teacher, you shouldn’t recklessly become a teacher to others, not should you recklessly teach others. Certainly, if you truly have something you should teach, then you should become a teacher. If you truely have something to study, then you should start teaching.
The Second Year of Ansei, The Sixteenth of August. “Minutes of the Head Lecturer.”

23日妄りに人の師となるべからず
師道を興さんとらば、妄りに人の師となるべからず、又妄りに人を師とすべからず。必ず真に教ふべきことありて師となり、真に学ぶべきことありて師とすべし。
安政二年八月十六日「講孟箚記」
