Confucius was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician, and philosopher of the Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history.
The object of the superior man is truth.
The superior man makes the difficulty to be overcome his first interest; success only comes later.
We should feel sorrow, but not sink under its oppression.
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.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
The superior man is distressed by the limitations of his ability; he is not distressed by the fact that men do not recognize the ability that he has.
Without feelings of respect, what is there to distinguish men from beasts?
I will not be concerned at other men's not knowing me; I will be concerned at my own want of ability.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
