Confucius Said

The Analects, or Lunyu (论语), also known as the Analects of Confucius, is the collection of sayings and ideas attributed to the Chinese philosopher Confucius and his contemporaries, traditionally believed to have been written by Confucius’ followers. The Analects has been one of the most widely read and studied books in China for the last 2000 years, and continues to have a substantial influence on Chinese and East Asian thought and values today (Excerpt from Wikipedia).

We will keep updating the excerpts from Lunyu on a weekly basis to reflect the essence of Confucius’ philosophy. Please look to the right sidebar for the context of “Confucius Said (子曰)”.
