Faithful Until the Last Years

When a country is strong and her power flourishes, everyone strives with sincerity. When a country is weak and her power wanes, people’s resolve is altered, they surrender to the enemy, and those who would sell their own lords out are not few. For this reason, unless one has those who are faithful until the last years of life, isn’t any amount of wits, smarts, knowledge, or skills insufficient compared to respect? Those faithful to bright lords are not rare, but those faithful to dim lords are truly faithful.
The Second Year of Ansei, The Twelfth of November. “Minutes of the Head Lecturer.”
