But if you do not have the Tao yourself, what business have you spending your time in vain efforts to bring corrupt politicians into the right path?
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)

The Way is not for, but from, man; if we take the Way as something superhuman, beyond man, this is not the real Way.
If I do not participate in the sacrifice, it is as if I did not sacrifice at all.
To see what is right and not to do it, is want of courage.
Worry not that no one knows of you; seek to be worth knowing.

In vain I have looked for a single man capable of seeing his own faults and bringing the charge home against himself.
He that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.
The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success comes only later.
He who conquers himself is the mightiest warrior.
Silence is a friend who will never betray.
