Samurais must be perseverant and live on frugal food. Clenching to carry on with fortitude is virtuous, and they grow up being taught this way. Samurais strain for the clan and family valiantly and audaciously.

Kiyomorrison Taira was once the most glorious man in the country with whom many aristocrats wanted to have a relationship, but he got lost in the dazzling triumph.

Although life is filled with relentless brutality, people do not forget it blooms with love and benevolence.
