Confucius and Confusion

Sounds really funny, since I was very young I am a confused boy, very puzzled and bewildered, but never lost for what I want.

I am confused by the life, the meaning of life, and think the world is full of confusion. That's why I picked confusion as my nick. Then I tried to find the adjective for confusion and I don't like confusional(?), so I decided to use confusious(even though no such word), then people are thinking I was wrong and should be confucius. Well, should I change this to the famous ancient great Master Kong? Let me know your answer:)

Confucius Says (子曰)is so profound, and let's review the Top 10 quotes from Master Kong (so many and I just pick what I like:):

Just a thought: I have to say sorry to Master Kong, since in the end he was confused and failed. The Only savior is Our Lord! Don't you agree?!

1. “Never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself.”


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


3. “Keep what you say and carry out what you do.”

4. “A gentleman sets strict demands on himself while a petty man set strict demands on others.”


5. “The Superior Man is aware of Righteousness, the inferior man is aware of advantage.”


6. “The gentleman wishes to be slow in speech but quick in action.”

7. “When I walk along with two others, they may serve me as my teachers.”


8. “He who learns but does not think, is lost. He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger.”


9. “He that would perfect his work must first sharpen his tools.”


10. “If you look into your own heart, and you find nothing wrong there, what is there to worry about? What is there to fear?”


Is it not delightful to have friends coming from distant quarters?


  1. interesting, a lot of sayings actually are consistent with Bible.

    1. 子曰:吾,十有五,而志于学,三十而立,四十而不惑,五十而知天命,六十而耳顺,七十而从心所欲,不逾矩。
