The Master said,
'When (the ruler) above can be known by men looking at him,
and (his ministers) below can have their doings related and remembered,
then the ruler has no occasion to doubt his ministers,
and the ministers are not led astray by their ruler.
The Announcement of Yin says (Shu, IV, vi, 3),
"There were I, Yin, and Tang;
。’ both possessed the same pure virtue."
It is said in the Book of Poetry (I, xiv, ode 3, 3),
君子 "In soul so steadfast is that princely man,
。’” Whose course for fault or flaw we vainly scan."'
