10 Quotes That Will Show You the Secrets to Life on Confucious Day

Who is Confucious? Why does he have the rep of being a genius? Probably because he was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.

There are many variations of books idolizing Confucious, whether it be a biography or a book of quotes that simply just ring the right inspiring tunes to your ears. Today is Confucious Day and we at Karmakiss would like to honor the beliefs and virtues of Confucious that we still live by today.

  1. Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
  2. When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
  3. It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
  4. To know what you know and what you do not know, that is true knowledge.
  5. The more man meditates upon good thoughts, the better will be his world and the world at large.
  6. To practice five things under all circumstances constitutes perfect virtue; these five are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.
  7. There are three methods to gaining wisdom. The first is reflection, which is the highest. The second is limitation, which is the easiest. The third is experience, which is the bitterest.
  8. Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without.
  9. Never contract a friendship with a man that is not better than thyself.
  10. The faults of a superior person are like the sun and moon. They have their faults, and everyone sees them; they change and everyone looks up to them.Now take some time to sit on these and really give your spirit and mind something to feed on, on Confucious Day.
