Sayings of Confucius

In learning and straightway practising is there not pleasure also? When friends gather round from afar do we not rejoice? Whom lack of fame cannot vex is not he a gentleman?
-Confucius

Honeyed words and flattering looks seldom speak of love.
-Confucius
To guide a land of a thousand chariots, honour business, be true and sparing, love the people, and time thy claims upon them.
-Confucius
The young should be dutiful at home, modest abroad, heedful and true, full of goodwill for the many, close friends with love; and should they have strength to spare, let them spend it upon the arts.
-Confucius
Of a gentleman who is frivolous none stand in awe, nor can his learning be sound. Make faithfulness and truth thy masters: have no friends unlike thyself: be not ashamed to mend thy faults.
-Confucius
As long as his father lives a son should study his wishes; after he is dead, he should study his life. If for three years he do not forsake his father’s ways, he may be called dutiful.
-Confucius
A gentleman who is not a greedy eater, nor a lover of ease at home, who is earnest in deed and careful of speech, who seeks the righteous and profits by them, may be called fond of learning.
-Confucius
Not to be known should not grieve you: grieve that ye know not men.
-Confucius
