What is Important When Studying

Basically, what is important with studying is that you do it for your own sake. Gentlemen study for their own sake. Small men study for the sake of others.
The Second Year of Ansei, The Seventh of September. “Lecture Notes.”

凡そ学をなすの要は己が為めにするにあり。己が為めにするは君子の学なり。人の為めにするは小人の学なり。
安政二年九月七月「講孟劄記」
