Cultivate Himself

Worldly praise rarely is something that matches the truth. However, if the heart fears slander and implores for praise, you will pay attention to all the superficial words and your daily acts of sincerity will become rare. For this reason, it is the duty of a gentleman to cultivate himself and endeavour towards truth.
