Two Types of Gentlemen 1

There are two types of gentlemen. The first are noble men who from the very start cannot conform to this passing world, can not belong in this filthy world, so from the very start they take the ancients as their teachers. When such men as they are in the world, the ordinary and ignorant masses are shocked by their strangeness, and from the start twist their mouths down at them. And only the few learned men admire deeply them.

19日君子小人並びに服するの人①
君子に二等あり。高尚の士は固より流俗に同じうせず、汗世に合せず、嘐々然として古人を以て師とす。此の人の世に居る、俗人庸夫其の奇怪に駭き、口を交へて垂罵するは固よりなり。而して独り有識の士のみ深く是れを推服す。
