Inspirational quotes from Confucius

Continuing our season of inspirational quotes here are some from the Chinese philosopher Confucius. Even though Confucius was born two and an half thousand years ago his words are as relevant now as they were then.

"A superior man is modest in his speech, but exceeds in his actions."

"I hear, I know. I see, I remember. I do, I understand."

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

"I will not be concerned at other men's not knowing me;I will be concerned at my own want of ability."

"He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger"

"If we don't know life, how can we know death?"

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand."

"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."

"I will not be concerned at other men's not knowing me;I will be concerned at my own want of ability."

"It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop."

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

"The superior man acts before he speaks, and afterwards speaks according to his action."

"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get."

"Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."

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

"When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps."

"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential... these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence."

"Speak the truth, do not yield to anger; give, if thou art asked for little; by these three steps thou wilt go near the gods."

"The superior man understands what is right; the inferior man understands what will sell."

"When anger rises, think of the consequences."

"Instead of being concerned that you have no office, be concerned to think how you may fit yourself for office. Instead of being concerned that you are not known, see to the (be?) worthy of being known."
