    If a man steps on a stranger’s foot
    In the marketplace,
    He makes a polite apology
    And offers an explanation:
    “This place is so crowded.”

    If an elder brother
    Steps on his younger brother’s foot
    He says, “Sorry.”
    And that is that.

    If a parent steps on his child’s foot
    Nothing is said at all.

    The greatest politeness
    Is free from all formality.
    Perfect conduct is free of concern.
    Perfect wisdom is unplanned.
    Perfect love is without demonstrations.
    Perfect sincerity offers no guarantee.
