The Qualifications of a Man (男の条件, Otoko no Jōken) is a manga series published in the late 60s and was written by Ikki Kajiwara and drawn by Noburo Kawasaki.
5 Major Qualifications
- Never create a superficial piece of work. Turn every drop of your blood into ink!
- Do not indulge yourself in the Flowers of Temporal Popularity. Dig up the soil to spread your roots deep below.
- Even if you attain some status, do not linger on it. If there is a choice between peace and storm, choose the storm.
- Never cry after being defeated. Research your defeat, and let that be the mother of your victory.
- Even if you follow all of the qualifications, never think that you are always correct. Let everybody around you be your master.
