The Thoughts of Confucius: A Legacy for Humanity

February 28, 2017

Confucius was a Chinese philosopher who lived in an era in which war and confusion reigned. However, he never gave up his efforts for finding a path towards overcoming one’s difficulties through knowledge.

When he was 50 years old, he started traveling through China. In his travels, he spread his thoughts, especially in the form of aphorisms. His influence was so great, that soon he began to fill town squares. Even politicians and men of power accepted and put into practice his reflections.

“If you want to be wise, learn to question reasonably, to listen carefully, to respond with serenity and to be quiet when you have nothing to say.”
–Johann Kaspar Lavater–
