Base yourself in loyalty and trust.
Respect yourself and others will respect you.
The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.
I do not see what use a man can be put to, whose word cannot be trusted. How can a wagon be made to go if it has no yoke-bar, or a carriage if it has no collar-bar?
The faults of a superior person are like the sun and moon. They have their faults, and everyone sees them; they change and everyone looks up to them.
