There is nothing certain that man understands about the bounds of the heart. If the ears, eyes, nor whole body cannot perceive it, then one cannot understand. However, it is said the heart can be seen without literally looking. There is no way to hide whether you love fame and profit, or love virtue and courage… You should be anxious, but at the same time you should also be trustworthy.
