|The Teaching Confucius by Wu Daozi, (685-758, Tang Dynasty)|
CONFUCIUS: Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.
CONFUCIUS: Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it.
CONFUCIUS: Respect yourself and others will respect you.
CONFUCIUS: Learning without thought is labor lost; thought without learning is perilous.
CONFUCIUS: A gentleman is broad and fair; the small man takes sides and is narrow.
CONFUCIUS: Learning without thought is naught; thought without learning is dangerous.
CONFUCIUS: We shall seldom get lost if we hold to main lines.
CONFUCIUS: When I first met men I listened to their words and took their deeds on trust. When I meet them now, I listen to their words and watch their deeds.
CONFUCIUS: The people may be made to follow, we cannot make them understand.
CONFUCIUS: Learn as though the time were short, like one that fears to lose.
CONFUCIUS: Put faithfulness and trust first, and follow the right; the mind will be raised. We wish life to what we love and death to what we hate. To wish it both life and death is a delusion.
CONFUCIUS: A knight that is fond of ease does not amount to a knight.
CONFUCIUS: A man of mind can always talk, but talkers are not always men of mind.
CONFUCIUS: When words are unblushing, they are hard to make good.
