- Two men (Matsudaira Izu no kami and Master Mizuno Kenmotsu) have this conversation.
Matsudaira: "You're such a useful person. It's a shame that you're so short."Master Kenmotsu: "That's true. Sometimes some things in this world don't go the way we would like. Now if I were to cut off your head and attach it to the bottom of my feet, I would be taller. But that's something that couldn't be done."
