  1. 故進不求名退不避罪唯民是保而利合於主國之寶也
  2. 視卒如嬰兒故可與之赴深谿視卒如愛子故可與之俱死


24. The general who advances without coveting fame and retreats without fearing disgrace, whose only thought is to protect his country and do good service for his sovereign, is the jewel of the kingdom.

25. Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.
