What is right is liked and esteemed even if defeated; what is unjust is loathsome and disliked even if victorious.

What is right is beautiful in character, and the one who is right is sweet. Even if the right falls into the mud, it remains pure and upright. Even if the unjust is washed with musk, it remains impure and disgusting.

Color and shape may change, but essence does not. Name and title may change, but character does not. Such changes have fooled, and continue to fool, many people.

* * *

Those who oppress the weak are defeated even if they seem to be the victors; those who are right are victorious even if they seem to be the losers.
