The Scripture of the Founding Master

Chapter Four: The Way of Humanity


A disciple was using frivolous language in speaking to a child. The Founding Master said, “When human beings deal with elders, there is a Way to honor the elders; when dealing with children, there is a Way to love the children. Even though the formalities may differ depending on the case, the spirit that respects the other and is considerate to them is not different. So how then can one be so inconsiderate just because one is dealing with a child?”
