All Sincerity

People have only sincerity. With sincerity, they attend their fathers with filial piety, attend their lords with loyalty, and associate with their friends with fidelity. This has many different names, but in the end they are all sincerity.
The Third Year of Ansei, The 29th of May. “Minutes of the Head Lecturer.”

2日畢竟一誠なり
人唯だ一誠あり、以て父に事ふれば孝、君に事ふれば忠、友に交はれば信。此の類千百、名を異にすれども、畢竟一誠なり。
安政三年五月二十九日「講孟箚記」
