"Master K'ung said, 'The gentleman has nine cares. In seeing he
is careful to see clearly, in hearing he is careful to hear distinctly,
in his looks he is careful to be kindly; in his manner to be
respectful, in his words to be loyal, in his work to be diligent.
When in doubt he is careful to ask for information; when angry
he has a care for the consequences, and when he sees a chance
of gain, he thinks carefully whether the pursuit of it would be
consonant with the Right.' "
