The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


The Founding Master said, “A matter, the original intention of which was to bring benefit to others, might inadvertently go wrong and instead cause them harm. Thus, when you are doing something for the sake of others, you must take precautions in advance; and people who are inadvertently harmed in such a case should remind themselves of that original intention, and should instead remain grateful rather than become resentful by considering only the harmful result.”
