Generally, he who has received life on this earth–noble or lowly, man or women–should not idlely dwell by himself nor fail to study individually. Having done this, he will for the first time be fit to follow the Ancient Way.

17日凡そ生を天地間に稟くる者
凡そ生を天地間に稟くる者、貴となく賤となく、男となく女となく、一人の逸居すべきなく、一人の教えなかるべきなし。然る後初めて古道に合ふと云ふべし。
安政三年八月以降「武教全書講録」
