Look at a rat,it has its skin;
But a man should be without dignity of demeanour.
If a man have no dignity of demeanour,
What should he but die?
Look at a rat, it has its teeth;
But a man shall be without any right deportment.
If a man have not right deportment,
What should he wait for but death?
Look at a rat, it has its limbs;
But a man shall be without any rules of propriety.
If a man observe no rules of propriety,
Why does he not quickly die?
