Confucius was born September 28th and I thought it would be a nice reminder for all to commemorate and reflect on his wise words of Wisdom which have influenced not only his own society, but also our own.


"Master Kong," or Kong Qui better known as Confucius (Latin name) is believed to be born on September 28, 551 BC.

Confucius (551-479 BCE) was a great Chinese scholar and social philosopher, whose thoughts and teachings have profoundly influenced Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Japanese thoughts and life. His preaching’s have guided millions for over 2500 years.

Here's to you Master Kong


Although familiar with the puns, we've heard them all, these ones are actual translations from Confucius himself.

The Wise words of Confucius..

"Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others.”
― Confucius

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”
― Confucius

“The funniest people are the saddest ones”
― Confucius

"When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.”
― Confucius

“Silence is a true friend who never betrays.”
― Confucius

"Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”
― Confucius

"What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.”
― Confucius

“It is not the failure of others to appreciate your abilities that should trouble you, but rather your failure to appreciate theirs.”
― Confucius

"If you make a mistake and do not correct it, this is called a mistake.”
― Confucius

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one's ignorance.”
― Confucius

“He who knows all the answers has not been asked all the questions.”
― Confucius

I'm not sure. Let me contact the Chinese government and get back to you.


Got any good phrases you'd like to add?
