Overview: Kou is about how easily virtue can be undermined and the need to prevent this from happening. Although situations you encounter may seem unimportant initially if you do not guard against them they will gather momentum and be extremely difficult to deal with. Don't underestimate how quickly this can happen. If you are tempted into meeting with unscrupulous people, acknowledge your own part in this mistake and remove yourself from their presence and the situation.
