Confucius Says

Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.

Today is Confucius Day. Confucius (551 - 479 BC) was a scholar, a teacher, and a philosopher who left 499 short sayings to enrich the world.

We have all heard funny little sayings introduced by "Confucius says," so was he a comedian? Probably not. His philosophy centered around morality and justice, social relationships and sincerity which all sound like very serious subjects.

In observance of this day, we should study his teachings and perhaps incorporate some of them into our own lifestyles.

To see what is right and not to do it is want of courage or of principle.
