Confucius sayings are some of my absolute favorites! This ancient Chinese philosopher speaks with much wisdom and simplicity. I really love his style. He gets to the point and doesn't waste any breath. Some sayings are a bit cerebral, which is always fun as well.
"Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without."
"Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it."
"Heaven means to be one with God."
"I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I understand."
"I want you to be everything that's you, deep at the center of your being."
"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."
"Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall."
"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."
"The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life."
"Attack the evil that is within yourself, rather than attacking the evil that is in others."
"Isn't it a pleasure to study and practice what you have learned?"
"Reviewing what you have learned and learning anew, you are fit to be a teacher."
"When we see men of worth, we should think of equaling them; when we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves."
"The cautious seldom err."
"The virtuous man is driven by responsibility, the non-virtuous man is driven by profit."
"What you do not want done to yourself, do not do to others."
"In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself."
"In all things success depends on previous preparation, and without such previous preparation there is sure to be failure."
"To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it."
"Virtue is not left to stand alone. He who practices it will have neighbors."
"We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression."
