Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)

Words are the voice of the heart.
Without knowing the force of words, it is impossible to know men.
The Way is not for, but from, man; if we take the Way as something superhuman, beyond man, this is not the real Way.
It is goodness that gives to a neighborhood its beauty. One who is free to choose, yet does not prefer to dwell among the good - how can he be accorded the name of wise?
By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and Third, by experience, which is the bitterest.
The true gentleman does not preach what he practices till he has practiced what he preaches.
The superior man thinks always of virtue; the common man thinks of comfort.
Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
Study without reflection is a waste of time; reflection without study is dangerous.
