Mustn’t Be Content with Small Success

The way you live and study is all true. However, you musn’t be content with small success lest heedless actions cause you to stray.
The Fourth Year of Ansei, the 27th of June. “Reply to Fukubara Seisuke.”

26日小成に安んずることなかれ
老兄の為す所学ぶ所、事々皆実なり、但だ軽用妄挙して以て小成に安んずることなかれ
安政四年六月二十七日「福原清介に復す」
