In the early 1900s, how did Japanese Samurai professor, Dr Inazo Nitobe, define Bushido?

Answer: Bushido is to be “… contented with one’s life, to accept the natal irreversible status and to cultivate oneself within that allotted station, to be loyal to the master of the family, to value one’s ancestors, to train oneself in the military arts by cultivation and by discipline of one’s mind and body.’
