The superior man thinks always of virtue; the common man thinks of comfort.
Confucius (c. 551 - c. 479 BC)
Contributed by: Zaady
Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors.
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.
Sincerity and truth are the basis of every virtue.
In antiquity men studied for their own sake; nowadays men study for the sake of impressing others.
If I do not participate in the sacrifice, it is as if I did not sacrifice at all.
