Confucius (named Kong Qiu, styled Zhong Ni) was born in the village of Zhou in the country of Lu in 551 B.C. He was a Chinese thinker and social philosopher of the Spring and Autumn Period. The philosophy of Confucius emphasized personal and governmental morality, correctness of social relationships, justice and sincerity. Confucius' thoughts have been developed into a system of philosophy known as Confucianism
My favorite saying is,” respect yourself and others will respect you” I agree
completely with the statement. If you don’t respect yourself you will never be
able to earn the respect of others. Respecting yourself starts out with a few simple things. First, love yourself. If you don’t love yourself you will never be able to give yourself respect. Then you need to believe your choices and abilities. Even if sometimes, you are wrong, it’s OK. Nobody is perfect. If you
don’t believe in yourself nobody will believe yourself.
Everything has its beauty but not everyone sees it” is one of my favorites.
Anything has good or bad aspects. What we usually see is a part of the surface For example, a young man was arrested for robbing the bank, he stole money in order to save sick mother. So we only see his bad action and can’t see his
filial heart. Durian is a kind of fruit that a lot of people don't like , because it smell terrible, but its pulp is delicious, and so on, so we can't only see anything
from the surface
I like “When anger rises, think of the consequences” It means that if we don't
understand things, we should listen to other people's opinions or Suggestions, don't always complain. When anger rises we should control our temperaments and keep clam, so we can solve the problem well.
