He who is really good can never be unhappy. He who is really wise can never be perplexed. He who is really brave is never afraid.
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)

Without goodness a man cannot endure adversity for long, nor can he enjoy prosperity for long. The good man is naturally at ease with goodness. The wise man cultivates goodness for its advantage.
An oppressive government is more to be feared than a tiger.
In the morning, hear the Way; in the evening, die content!

Heaven means to be one with God.
To go beyond is as wrong as to fall short.
The real fault is to have faults and not try to mend them.
Who expects to be able to go out of a house except by the door? How is it then that no one follows this Way of ours?
If a man take no thought about what is distant, he will find sorrow near at hand.
To be wronged is nothing, unless you continue to remember it.
