Never Give Up Until Death

“Shi Shite Nochi Yamu (never give up until death)” are short words, but have a very far meaning. “Ken Nin Ka Ketsu (persevere and act resolutely)”: You must stand steadfast. There is no other method but this.

13日死して後已むの四字は
死して(而)後已むの四字は言簡にして義広し。堅忍果決、確乎として抜くべからざるものは、是を舎きて術なきなり。
安政二年三月「士規七則」
