and sustenance to the people.
君子 The gentleman would do well to understand and practise universal love;
then he would be gracious as a ruler,
loyal as a minister,
affectionate as a father,
filial as a son,
courteous as an elder brother,
and respectful as a younger brother.
君子So, if the gentleman desires to be a gracious ruler, a loyal minister, an affectionate father, a filial son, a courteous elder brother, and a respectful younger brother,
universal love must be practised.
