As we all know, Confucius is a great thinker and educator in our country, founder of the Confucian school, one of the most famous cultural celebrities . His words and deeds were recorded by his disciples in book entitled The Analects of Confucius
Teaching according to individual talent.
Keep what you say and carry out what you do
Learning about new things by reviewing old things
In education ,there is no class distinction
Learning without thought is labor lost ; thought without learning is perilous
Not inflicting on others that which you do not want yourself.
Wherever three individual people come together ,one of them will surely be good enough to teach me something .I will pick out his good points and emulate them, his bad points I will reform.
The gentleman is courteous , but not pliable; common men are pliable not courteous
How happy we are. To meet friends from far away!
Insatiable in learning and tireless in teaching
The most valuable use of the rites is to achieve harmony
A little story about Confucius
? Once ,a student of Confucius was cooking porridge, then
founding something dirty fall into the pot .He hurriedly picked it up with a spoon and was about to throw it away , then an idea flashed into his mind that every grain of rice is hard-earned. So he ate it up. Just then Confucius was passing by the kitchen, thinking this student who was responsible for cooking was stealing food, then giving him a lesson. After this student explained, everybody eventually had to take a tumble. Finally, Confucius said with exclamation ,“The things what I saw with my own eyes couldn’t be believable , let alone gossip and rumour.
