Inspiration Given By Confucius

His teachings are primarily derived from the Analects of Confucius. The cover issues such as personal morality, war, governing, justice and sincerity to mention only a few subjects. Here are a few of his inspirational and thoughtful quotes.
When anger rises, think of the consequences.
He who speaks without modesty will find it difficult to make his words good.
To see what is right and not to do it is want of courage. The superior man, when resting in safety, does not forget that danger may come. When in a state of security he does not forget the possibility of ruin. When all is orderly, he does not forget that disorder may come. Thus his person is not endangered, and his States and all their clans are preserved.
They must often change who would be constant in happiness or wisdom. When we see men of a contrary character, we should turn inwards and examine ourselves.
Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue. To be able under all circumstances to practice five things constitutes perfect virtue; these five things are gravity, generosity of soul, sincerity, earnestness and kindness.
Have no friends not equal to yourself.
By nature, men are nearly alike; by practice, they get to be wide apart.
He who exercises government by means of his virtue may be compared to the north polar star, which keeps its place and all the stars turn towards it.
Reading the above thoughts, it is hardly difficult to ascertain why the writing and sayings of Confucius have stood the test of time. Indeed, it is hard to imagine any more inspiring thoughts being produced by any figure of the modern era.
