The Master said: "Regard loyalty and good faith as your main concern. Do not make friends of those who are not up to your own standard. If you commit a fault, do not shrink from correcting it."
The Master said: “If one loves someone, can one avoid making him work hard? If one is loyal to someone, can one avoid instructing him?”
The Master cut out four things. He never took anything for granted, he never insisted on certainty, he was never inflexible and never egotistical.
(In the above text, Confucius is referred to as the master)
