Have you guys looked up Confucius recently? You might find some of his quotes interesting! I love two of his quotes a lot:

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

"Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart." Confucius

Look him up! I am curious to think what you guys think of him! He lived in like 551 B.C. to 479 B.C. (something like that.) and he was thinking these things in China way before everyone else was! ( well besides the ancient Greeks and Romans.)We've been studying him in Social Studies, and I really like him. What do you think of Confucius?
Just Wondering,

Confucius say...

Man who walk in front of bus get tired.

Man who walk BEHIND bus get exhausted.

Man who lives in glass house... should change in basement.

Man who get stuck in pantry have ass in jam.

Man who go to bed with sex on mind, wake up with solution in hand.

Baseball all wrong. Man with three balls can't walk.

Obviously Confucius never said these things. But they're still funny as hell. :p

Very sexist. Also, many of his philosophies and teachings contributed to the rather authoritarian governments of China past and present.

Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.

It is only the wisest and the stupidest that cannot change.

He who wishes to secure the good of others has already secured his own.

Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.
