Teachings Of Great People
I have never been a teacher of anyone.
However, whether young or old, if anybody wanted to have conversation, my regular work, with me, I have never rejected it.
I have never had the cases where I had conversation with people because of money.
I have had questions from anyone without discriminating between the poor and the rich.
I have spoken to anybody about anything without hesitation if they wanted to listen to me.
By the way, it is not right to attribute the responsibility for the cases to me where some became great and others did not.
I have never promised anybody that I would teach knowledge and have never taught it, either.
Nonetheless, if anybody said that he or she had learned from me personally, you have to know that it is not true.
Then, why do people like to have conversation with me for a long time and spend a long time with me together?
You have already heard the reason.
I have told the truth.
